Gorée Island

Recommended
With its lovely colonial houses in warm colours, sandy tracks and flourishing bougainvilleas, Gorée Island off the coast of Dakar feels amazingly calm and well-balanced, but we mustn't forget its dark days during the slave trade. Gorée is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
