Petite Côte of Senegal


The Petite Côte is a stretch of coast in Senegal, running south from the Cap Vert peninsula to the Sine-Saloum delta.

The northern section near Dakar contains popular seaside resorts such as Saly Portudal, Rufisque, Nianing and Popenguire, while the entire coast is home to the city of M’Bour and fishing villages such as Toubab Dialao, Joal-Fadiout, Palmarin and Djiffer.

This stretch of beach is one of the most popular places in the country to visit. Tradewinds keep the dazzling white beaches cooler than spots farther inland, and the peaceful surrounds make a great side trip from Dakar.
