    Finding paradise in Sierra Leone.

    Green forests, endless beaches, superb hiking and culinary experiences … Sierra Leone is happy to welcome you.

    Sierra Leone: a perfect beach destination

    West Africa’s secret beach destination.

    400 kilometres of stunning and virtually deserted sand beaches await you.

    Sierra Leone Hinterland

    A whole range of outdoor activities.

    Hiking, birdwatching, face-to-face meetings with chimpanzees in lush, evergreen forests. A must for all wildlife lovers.

    Flights to Freetown, Sierra Leone

    Perched between mountains and sea, Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone, is a lively and colourful city in West Africa and one of the few natural harbours on the Atlantic Ocean. The city was founded by freed slaves from North America at the end of the 18th century; an ancient cotton tree still stands marking the spot of this historical event.

    Sierra Leone is one of West Africa’s best beach destinations offering a beach for every mood and need: party spots or secluded beaches, popular or wild, strictly for sunbathing or swimming, by a river or lagoon, with white or golden sand… No matter which one you choose, you can always treat yourself to a picnic with delicious fresh fish, crab or lobster while you enjoy stunning sunsets.

    Sierra Leone is a must visit for nature and wildlife lovers. Besides a range of outdoor activities such as boating, fishing, surfing, golf, diving, hiking, hunting…, you’ll be able to meet magnificent chimpanzees in their lush, natural rainforest habitat.

    So what are you waiting for? Book your flight ticket to Freetown now and discover Sierra Leone!

    What to do in Freetown and Sierra Leone?

    1. Dip into the cultural heritage of Sierra Leone at the Sierra Leone Museum. Knowledgeable guides bring the artefacts to life at this tiny but fascinating museum with background stories of “secret societies” and masquerade traditions.
    2. Take time to rummage for souvenirs around Big Market. This jumble of stalls is packed to the gills with an array of arts and crafts as well as everyday local household items.
    3. To get an insight into the slave trade in Sierra Leone you can rent a water taxi from Freetown and head to Bunce Island, one of the most important slave sites for African Americans. The tragic history of the site is balanced by the beautiful nature all around.
    4. Beach lovers are spoiled in Sierra Leone. River No. 2 Beach, just outside Freetown, is considered to be one of the best beaches in Africa. Find yourself in the middle of nowhere surrounded by white sand and lush mountains. You’ll also fall in love with the dolce vita in Sussex Beach and the palm trees and the charming little villages around Tokeh Beach. To hit the best waves, head south to Bureh or go to Mama Beach to admire colourful fishing boats. You can also sail to the Banana Islands, a real tropical paradise where you can relax on the beach, wander through the lush forest, and discover historical sites, diving and fishing.
    5. Are you looking for more adventure? Then head further south to the Turtle Islands passing by the hidden treasures of Bonthe. Reaching the islands can be quite a challenge, but once there you’ll experience real tropical paradise.
    6. Just 20 minutes from Freetown, take to the hills and trails of Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary to observe our furry relatives in a rainforest reserve. Stay for the weekend in the eco houses in the trees and combine the guided forest walks with some downward dogs at their yoga retreats.
    7. One of the most visited spots for hiking is the Loma Mountains Natural Reserve, boasting Mount Bitumani (almost 2000 m), the highest peak in the country. Nevertheless, there are also several hiking trails and walking routes in the mountains around Freetown.
    8. You’ll be warmly welcomed by Sierra Leoneans. To experience the local culture first-hand, stay in villages to experience the local way of living. Upcountry hamlets, coastal fishing villages, rice farms… the choice is yours.
