The resort of Saly is located on the “Petite Côte”, approximately 80 kilometres south of Dakar and 65 kilometres north of the Sine Saloum Delta. As well as being one of the most important fishing ports in Senegal, Saly is an ideal holiday destination that has long been popular with French and Belgian tourists and as such has a very established feel, with its variety of hotels, palm-fringed sandy beaches, calm clear waters, bars, restaurants, shops and a wide range of activities.
The smaller resort of La Somone is only a short drive from Saly and enjoys an idyllic location beside a stunning lagoon, home to the Réserve de la Somone, a birdwatcher’s paradise. Nearby you can also visit the Bandia Nature Reserve, a small but perfectly formed wildlife park where you can see roaming freely: giraffe, rhino, zebra, ostrich, antelope, buffalo, bush pigs, impala and many other birds and animals.
For the more active, both Saly and La Somone have several excellent watersports centres, offering a range of activities such as jet skis, water-skiing, catamarans, kayaks and windsurfing, and several excellent fishing clubs offering world class deep sea fishing. Quad and buggy tours or horse treks are available in and around the resorts and Saly is home to an attractive 18–hole golf course as well as the Accrobaobab Adventure Park, where you can climb, swing and slide on a series of nets and ropes amongst the baobab trees.
