Cape Skirring

An overnight in Senegal's top beach resort destination.

If you have time for an overnight trip, this lovely stretch of coast down south just above the Gambia border is well worth it. You'll find long stretches of clean, white, gorgeous Atlantic beaches, backed by palm trees and verdant vegetation. There's also a village 9 kilometres (5½ miles) inland called Diembéring which makes for a charming visit. Cap Skirring's have not unsurprisingly become one of Senegal's premier holiday resort areas, and so there are quite a few hotels, restaurants, and varied attractions, as well. And as you would expect, there are numerous connections with Dakar, both by air and motorcoach.
