Welcome to the LA MAISON DES SURFEURS!
We have 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-lit and quiet, with wifi 24h. The cleaning service is included and the laundry is available on demand.
Tim, Tom and Milù are our dogs and the cat, they 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.

From Yoff it’s also super easy to go surfing, as from the mainland it takes only 15 minutes to reach the Almadies peninsula, where the most popluar breaks are (Club Med, Vivier, Secret) or Ouakam. Also Ngor is very close, and we have our boat ready to drop us directly on the wave!
Life in Yoff
The village of Yoff, located a few kilometers from Dakar downtown, is characterized by a very long history.
Yoff is one of the most important ports of traditional fishing in Senegal and the fish market of Tonghor is very typical and interesting to visit: in the evenings all the colourful canoes arrive on the beach with great tuna or swordfish. After the landings, it is usually the women, wives of fishermen, who provide retail.
The city enjoys a special autonomy. There is no government police and very little crime. This is thanks to the existance of a local administration system which supervises Yoff.
Yoff also hosts the grand mausoleum of Seydina Limamou Laye, which is a place of annual pilgrimage.
