  • The whole Island is a tourist market. For the ferry they charge different prices. The foreigner pays the highest price. Everything is a money issue on the island. My advice: don't go

  • A good place to visit but only drawback is waiting time for boat to be there and come back as well
  • If you visit Senegal, you have to take a boat ride from Dakar to île de Gorée. The sunrise and sunset there is such a beauty. The journey there by an open boat is so relaxing, kinda sets you in the mood for more relaxation at the serene beach front clusters. The whole island is also rich with history. Painful history in most cases but hopefully the abundant and delicious seafood found in most of the restaurants will help soothe the pain. 😉🙃
