Tanji Fishing Village

The fishing village of Tanji is especially nice in the afternoon because all the fishermen return with their catch (including sharks, sea turtles and barracudas). The women come to help bring the fish to the beach. The fish is smoked on the spot giving the entire village a heavy smell of smoked fish.

You are assured of some lovely pictures with the setting sun, the smoke of the fishsmokery, the pirogues (canoes) on the beach and the beautiful coloured traditional dresses of the women. The collection of thousands of (unconnected) refrigerators on the beach where the fish is kept in temporarily is very funny to see.
