Les Mamelles Lighthouse
Phare des Mamelles
When the Les Mamelles Lighthouse flashes every 5 seconds, ships know they have reached mainland Africa’s westernmost point.
At over 150 years old, this important Dakar landmark is well worth the visit. For a small fee you can go on a guided tour of the lighthouse.
Round off the visit with food, drinks and stunning views at the Restaurant Phare des Mamelles.
Check for evening and nightlife events as well. Nothing beats a party with 180-degree ocean and city views.
