Amoung those villages is an area popular with French expats called Toubab Dialaw. In Toubab Dialaw there are markets – like Superette La Fidelite, resorts – like Sobo Bade and the Iris Hotel and restaurants – like Cafe Theiboudienne, that cater to that forgeign crowd. The village sits on cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, giving an excellent vantage point to view the incredible sunsets on the western horizon.
