This is Dakar: Ile de Goree

The history of Ile de Goree is dark, it being a former port for slaves out of western Africa. Thankfully, the island is colorful and full of life. Restaurants, art galleries, shops, and beaches entertain wandering visitors.

Here on the island, it's easy to make a day trip or take a break from the fast pace of mainland Dakar, totally worth a short ferry ride across the bay to a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
