Ngor Island

Last weekend Richard and I headed to Ngor Island, a small island just 1/2 mile off the coast of Dakar. Paradise is what we had found.

Ngor Island is the home of the Ngor Right and Ngor Left waves...always big and considered 2 world class surf waves. And indeed the wave was big. If you have ever seen Endless Summer, you will recognize a lot of the footage.

Richard surfed while I relaxed at the Restaurant La Maison d'Italie under a seaside umbrella. The beach is calm and beautiful... with many buvettes on the beach where you can have a cold drink. To get there, you take a pirogue over from Dakar (about 500cfa or 50 cents) round trip.

Waiting for the boat at Ngor Beach.

These are the colorful pirogues that take you to the island.
