The old Portuguese port of Fadiouth, Senegal, has streets and buildings made of seashells (it's on a small islet that was built up on layers of accumulated shellfish) and is easily visited as a day trip from Saly Portudal, although it can be seen on a long day trip from Dakar.

Fadiouth lies just across from the small port of Joal, 80 mi/130 km south of Dakar, and can be reached either by walking across a wooden bridge or via canoe poled by children (passengers must find room in the canoe among plants and oysters). The road to Fadiouth passes peanut plantations.
