Do some quality bird-watching at Parque Nacional de la Lengua de Barbaria, which lies between the Senegal River and the coast. Opened in 1976, the sanctuary houses a diverse abundance of wildlife and vegetation, including white and gray pelicans, the mocking seagull, and other wading birds. Surrounded by sand dunes and casuarina trees, the beach serves as a nesting area for several species of sea turtles, seen throughout the year.
