Nice, quiet beach, very clean. There are few restaurants along the beach where you can enjoy a meal/drink and then sunbathe while looking at a relaxing view. You can also walk along the beach and swim in the sea, that is rare compared to other...More

Nice beach,for sunbathing and walking around. Swimming is posible. waves are moderate compared to other beaches. At our stay the watter temperature (march) is quit cold so we did not swim. Beach is also quit clean compared to the rest.

It is very long but there is rubbish on it near the town but not near the hotels. The sea has pretty high waves

This beach is very romantic for couples. It is clean and quit tranquil especially during sunset. The sand is not white as the carribean style but it is still very nice.

This beach is about 2k, quite, beautiful and has great places to eat. Enjoy a day or weekend walking and laying on a beach where most tourists never get too.

This is a great little beach to visit on the weekend from Dakar. It is pretty clean (especially if you walk down by the nature reserve) and a great get-away. When driving down, do yourself a favor and avoid the N1 and drive through Touabab...More
