I absolutely enjoyed my two weeks long stay at Malika Surf Camp. The atmosphere of the camp felt like home. Marta and Aziz, as well as the staff, are one of the kindest people I've ever met. As a beginner surfer i got lots of attention during my classes and i've learnt how to deal with surfing. The Malika crew always kept us informed about our surfing spot for the next day, depending on the waves. The wide, sandy beach directly in front of the camp is clean and allows easy access along the coast.
The guest rooms are very cosy and comfortable. On the rooftop there is a spacious terrace with the ocean view. It was really nice to spend evenings in the shared space with sofas, where you could meet all the other people from the camp. The fridge was always full of soft drinks and beer. Make yourself sure you'll never missed the dinner in there... it's so yummy! The real senegalese cuisine.
Thank you Malika, I'll come back for sure.

Malika Surf Camp is in an urban neigbourhood directly at the beach Yoff Plage BCEAO. You'll be instantly part of the lovely malika family and you meet a lot of nice locals here. You can book your room with surf course or yoga class included. Dakar has a many beaches to surf from beginner to professional and the malika team selects the perfect spot for the guests each day... Tours into other parts of the country can be organized on request. If you're into surfing and want to meet likeminded people, this place is highly recommended!

Malika Surf Camp is a family-run business located just in front of Yoff Beach, 20 min far from Dakar city center. I spent more than two months over there and it become suddenly my family. The hostel is so peaceful and quiet, you can always listen to the sound of the ocean or some guys playing drums nearby. It's a perfect accomodation for solo travelers (you'll meet crazy people all around the world with crazy stories to tell) or families as well, cats and dogs are free to welcome you! Malika owns also a business down the beach, where you could rent a surfboard or take some surfing classes with local coaches, or just enjoy a fresh smoothes while sunbathing by the beach. There's also a beach volley camp available every day and some gym and yoga retreat for your wellness. You just need to book your crazy senegalese experience!

I will forever be grateful to Malika Surf Camp. Here I was able to begin to fulfill a lifelong dream of surfing. Although I struggled and even got teased a bit for it, I made progress and didn't give up.

I met some very cool folks I am still in touch with, friends for life.

The space is directly across from the beach, so getting to it is easy. The lovely family-style home-cooked meals provide a way to meet the other surfing students. I learned a lot from the more advanced surfers and was able to get encouragement from beginners, like me.

I surfed with Malika for 6 days while in Dakar. Marta and the team were super friendly and helpful. They brought me to several different surf spots and the coaching really helped me to improve my skills. It was also an excellent place to meet other travelers. If you are in Dakar and want to surf, I would definitely recommend it.

It was one of those experiences that change your perception of life. So inspiring. This place is full of good vibes, full of good people... And a great place for good surf. One month was too short... but just long enought to make true friends. Love you all, my senegalese family : Marta, Aziz, Daouda, Hadi, Amy, Ismaila, Adama, Karim, Sassou, Cherif, Lamine, Cheikh, Talla, Ali, Ndoy, Deguen, Aida, Babacar, Issa, Gracie, Gorgui, Mamadou, Pape, Walid and all the boys...See you soon my friends ; )-

It was one of the best surf experience that I’ve ever made. The house is so beautiful and near the spots. The guys of Malika are kind and helpful, they immediately make you feel at home. The typical food is really good too.
You are really able to enter in this big and wonderful family, and to live a true experience, I hope to go back soon!

Amazing people, amazing place.
Lucky to have been there.
I go there with a group of friends to surf, and Air Senegal lost our boards. Marta and Aziz help us in everything we need: to contact the company, to find other board etc. They make you feel at home.
Thank you!

The surf house is very confortable, the rooms are big, really you have air and very clean.
And a huge breakfast and super dinner. The staff is professional, i mean everything you need you can ask and Marta knows a lot about Senegal skills and she can bring you surfing all around, with Misha and soma local boys.
I had a great stay, no problem at all and good people.

There is something truly magical about Malika.

I landed in Dakar with the ambition to surf in Senegal. Turns out Malika is one of the best places to do this. The surfer community vibe is very strong, the camp has real and binding ties to the local community, great people, both tourists and locals, come and go and everyone is just happy to be present.

Azziz and Marta have created something very unique and it was a sincere pleasure to be a part of their journey.
