The following study deals with the transposition of Foucault's concept of "heterotopia" to a holiday resort in Senegal, Saly, visited in December and January 2000. It will be first shown that this place is bound to be a perfect example of heterotopia, since it remains most of the time in concordance with all the elements of the definition of the concept, and as a result satisfies most of its aspects. Secondly, this heterotopian view leads to developing concrete sociological implications.
