Located on the western corniche of Dakar, Soumbédioune is a traditional fishing site in the heart of the Senegalese capital. With a craft village in 1961 on the occasion of the World Festival of Negro Arts, Soumbédioune became a tourist hotspot. However, fishing remains the main activity of this locality essentially composed of Lébous but very open to other communities.
The village is located in the Medina district of Dakar on the western corniche. Showcase of Senegalese craftsmanship, it has made a name for itself over time.
