Fadiout

Fadiouth, or Joal - Fadiouth, is a village at the end of the Petite Côte of Senegal, south-east of Dakar. Joal lies on the mainland, while Fadiouth, linked by a bridge, lies on an island of clam shells, which are also used in local architecture and crafts. Another attraction is granaries on stilts in the water. Naturalists will enjoy visiting the mangrove woods, which are populated by sea birds (sea gulls, woodcocks, pelicans, flamingos). Monkeys, ciconias and hyenas are also to be found there.
