Sierra Leone Beach-Hopping Holiday

Sierra Leone

If you have always wanted a holiday on a heavenly tropical beach in its natural state, this is the perfect trip. Whilst the peninsula beach accommodation is comfortable, Banana Island is basic without guaranteed hot water, but all the settings are out of this world. All three guesthouses have spectacular locations unspoiled by concrete developments, few people with whom to share this slice of paradise, fresh fish and genuine hospitality.
