Yoff is a town part of the city (commune) of Dakar
. It lies north of downtown Dakar and immediately north of Dakar Airport
(Dakar-Yoff-Léopold Sédar Senghor International Airport). The town is built along the broad beach at Yoff Bay.
Administration is devolved to the town, which is essentially run by the Layene Islamic Brotherhood, the town featuring the mausoleum of its founder. As a result, no alcohol is available in the town. Fishing is an important local industry, as are the pagan ndeup healing ceremonies. There are numerous construction-industry businesses and suppliers in the Yoff area, and it includes the largest Muslim cemetery serving greater Dakar.
