Senegal in West Africa offers holidaymakers an unforgettable experience. This colourful, fast-paced country has plenty to be explored with its beaches, modern capital and great hospitality. I found cheap return flights from Dublin to the capital of Dakar starting from €256!

Cheap Flights to Senegal

Senegal is safe to travel, so long as you stick together with your fellow travellers and avoid the Casamance region. Senegal is known as the “The Country of the Teranga”, meaning hospitality. You’ll find a very friendly country.

The capital city of Dakar is eclectic and beautiful. This port city offers modern nightlife scene, busy markets, white-washed stone buildings and tropical beaches. You’ll find plenty of interesting historical buildings and get an insight into this country’s colonial past. The small, car-free island of Goree is a tiny oasis off the coast of Dakar and the House of Slaves museum is certainly worth a visit. You can look for a great hotel or snag a bargain on Airbnb.

There’s the incredible natural phenomenon that is the pink Lake Retba just north of Cap Vert Peninsula. This lake gets its unusual colour from the high salt content found in the sand which attracts micro-organisms that produce a red pigment. Don’t forget to bring some shea butter if you decide to go for a swim here!
