Almadies Peninsula Surfing

About Almadies Peninsula

Most surfers who visit Senegal head straight to the prime surf area on the Almadies Peninsula, just outside Dakar. This westernmost tip of Africa juts out into the ocean and the peninsula has one of the largest swell windows in the world. Swells can appear from the SE and all the way around to the N, which is about 260°! Another great thing about this zone is that most of the spots lie within easy walking distance of each other.
