Noflaye Beach


There’s a new ‘it place’ in Dakar and it’s Noflaye Beach restaurant. Take the laid back feel of a surf shack and upgrade the décor to something Pinterest-worthy (the bathrooms!) and the standard Dakarois menu to include a variety of delicious savoury crêpes served with a lovely little salad or sweet dessert crêpes for a treat. And of course, all of this with a great ocean view and a space to relax and catch some rays or take a dip.

That’s Noflaye Beach.


Located on the Corniche des Almadies, between the Cabane des Surfeurs and Hotel des Almadies. Look for the big sign.

Tel: 33 820 3032

They have a great Facebook page, by the way! See their full menu there.





Thanks for the photos, Jenn!
