About the Local Area (Saly)

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. 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 water sports 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.


In Saly there are a number of water sports centres located at regular intervals along the bay and several centres offering world-class ocean fishing. Most of the hotels also offer sporting facilities such as table tennis and volleyball. Saly also has an 18 hole, 72 par golf course, and children and adults alike will enjoy a trip to the Bandia Nature Reserve, where you can see wildlife such as zebra, giraffes and rhino up close, followed by a few hours in the Accrobaobab Adventure Park, where you can climb, swing and slide on a series of nets and ropes amongst the baobab trees. A varied excursion programme is also on offer from each hotel to ensure you see the best of the local area.
