Discover Goree Island Senegal

Goree Island, just off the coast of Dakar, is a must-see. Not for the beaches but for its atmosphere. Goree is tragically linked to the slave trade, but it is also a fantastic island, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Three museums are worth seeing here; the Historic Museum, the Sea Museum and the House of the Slaves. Nearby you will find the oldest mosque in Senegal under a cliff.
