DESTINATIONS senegal dakar Do & See Médina


This popular neighbourhood is always vibrant and full of life. Street markets, bustling cafes, cramped homes, and tiny shops give this quartier a constant buzz, and the locals give it life and colour.

Do & See

Giant bronze statues, fantastic art museums, mosques, cathedrals and tons of fascinating history mean that you're sure to find plenty to do in Dakar. If you feel like exploring a bit further outside the city, attractions like the pink Lake Retba, the Village des Tortues, and the nearby Gorée Island make for great day trips.
