La Maison des Surfeurs – Yoff

This is our amazing place !


Welcome to LA MAISON DES SURFEURS in Yoff beach!

The surf house has a variety of room types: double rooms with private bathroom, single private room with private bathroom, family rooms with private bathroom, as well as twin rooms and a dormitory with common bathrooms.

The rooms have a fan and mosquito nets on the windows and above each bed. There are also personal lockers for your personal items.

Rooms are well-light and quiet, with wifi 24h. The cleaning service is included and the laundry is available on demand.

Our dogs and the cats are part of the house but aren’t allowed to enter into the rooms!

We have a big outside area with a ping-pong table and slack line as well as a chill area with hammocks. There is a roof terrace to enjoy the sunset and sunrise and to watch the waves rolling in.

Breakfast and dinner

A big breakfast is waiting for you, which includes: milk, coffee, tea, juice, bread, butter, chocolate, cheese and marmalade. Our marmalade is produced in Senegal and we have the following flavours: bissup (from the ibiscus tree), baobab, mango and papaya.

Senegal cooking is very healthy. At the camp we offer a range of local specialities and so you are always in for a treat with a hearty and delicious meal.

The popular dish is called “thiep bu jend” (rice and fish) which is a very rich dish with fish, rice and local vegetables (carrots, magnoca, cauliflower, eggplants).There is also a version with meat which is called “thiep bu yapp”.

Another very popular Senegalese dish which we have put an European twist to, is “mafé brochettes”, with peanuts sauce, meat, potatoes and rice!

We also make meat and fish skewers which are served on seperate nights.

There is always a fresh salad of lettuce, cucumber and tomatoes (washed with Amouchina) and a dessert of fruit.

We have our own basil and rosemary plants to guarantee plenty of taste!

We do offer vegetarian and vegan options, just tell us in advance.

Life in Yoff

Yoff is one of the most important ports of traditional fishing in Senegal. At the end of the bay, the fish market of Tonghor is very typical and interesting to visit as in the evenings all the colourful canoes arrive on the beach with great tuna or swordfish.

Yoff is composed by different districts, and the Surf Camp is located in the new area wich is BCEAO. In this area you can find all the services you might need: supermarket, bank, pharmacy, shops, fast foods and restaurants.

Finding a taxi is not a problem at any time of the day or night. The surfhouse is only 20 minutes to Dakar downtown. From Thrusday evening many clubs offer partys with different kind of music; so you’ll find it very easy to move around and have fun!

The beach offers very nice places for lunch at the seaside with grilled fish, prawns skewers, rice and salad. You could also opt for a small European restaurant at affordable prices and of course come and enjoy a smoothy made with seasonal fruits!
