Point of Sangomar

Located on the Atlantic Ocean at the mouth of the Saloum Delta, west of Senegal,  the Point of Sangomar is a narrow sandbar that extends south about 20 kilometers from Palmarin Diakhanor. The site has an interesting history dating back to the 19th century. Locals believe that the Point of Sangomar is a gathering place for the Pangool, the ancient saints and ancestral spirits of the Serer people of Senegal.
