relaxing and quiet place to rest with basic accomodation in huts Aug 14, 2009
Recently reopened and run by a spanish couple it is a relaxing and quiet place to rest with basic accomodation in huts set in the sand, with their own bthroom and hot water. At about 12 pm lights are off.

It is in the Langue de Barbarie, a long stretch of sand, many kilometres long form Mauritania to Saint Louis wich separates the Atlantic Ocean from the senegal river. the camp is reached by pirogue from Gandiol, on the river Senegal, about 20 km south of Saint Louis, a colonial town, declared Wordl Heritage site once the capital of french western Africa. Where the camp is, the strip ot sand is about 300 metres. on one side the Atlantic Ocean with a huge deserted beach. On the other, the river Senegal where you can also swim and relax in the many sunbeds facing the river.

the food is great, with a spanish touch.

It is a simple, laidback place which I thoroughly enjoyed and strongly recommend to travellers looking for this type of accommodation. they arrange excursions in pirogue along the river where you can see pelicans and flamingos and to the national parc langue de barbarie on the south tip. Either from there or Saint Louis, you can visit the DjoudPark, the thiurdlargest bird reserve in the world, open only during the european autunm-winter.
