The Petite Cote provides a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of Senegal's lively cities for travellers searching for a more relaxed Senegalese experience. Some of the most popular tourist destinations in the country including the seaside resort of Saly Portudal and Reserve de Bandia are located on the 200kms of coastline that make up the Petite Cote.
Forget the worries of urban life thanks to the beautiful ocean views, colourful landscape and slower pace of life.Then, going south a little further, here stands the real experience of a deep inner part of Senegal : the Sine Saloum Delta, its bolongs, its islands, its mangrove. Away from the cities, away from the resorts, here is the wild nature, here is the magnificent and surprising landscape, here is the Niominka way of life, here are the myriads of birds, between earth and water, between sea and river.
