Skip The Caribbean For These Ivory Coast Beaches
The Caribbean is revered as a top destination for some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, but West Africa has some hidden gems that remain undiscovered. Côte d’Ivoire, or what English speakers call Ivory Coast, has stunning beaches along the Atlantic Beach with incredible views.
From relaxing on the beach, enjoying water sports or exploring unspoiled territory, here are some of the top beaches in Ivory Coast and what to do once there.
Visiting Monogaga Beach is not an option when visiting Ivory Coast. It’s a must for travelers. Monogaga Beach is a tropical dream come true with its white sand and crystal-clear water. It is the most beautiful beach in Ivory Coast and consistently ranks at the top of the world’s most exotic beach lists.
While visitors travel to the beach for watersports, there’s a lot to indulge in on Monogaga Beach, such as beach volleyball, sand art competitions and live music.
It’s known as an adult playground because there’s always entertainment on one of the world’s most beautiful beaches.
Jacqueville-Beach is a newer seaside resort in Ivory Coast. Located nearly 40 miles from Abidjan, it’s perfect for beach-goers looking for peace and clarity. It’s a long, sandy beach surrounded by coconut trees, bars and restaurants to taste local food.
If you want a more lively atmosphere, many locals will venture to Jacqueville-Beach on the weekend, where it becomes more energetic and a different pace than on the weekdays.
In the Assinie-Mafia region of the Ivory Coast, Assinie Beach is one of the most popular beaches in West Africa. The region’s shoreline attracts people worldwide for its uniqueness. What makes the area stand out is its combination of an ocean and a lagoon, an incredible experience unlike anywhere else.
You get the best of both worlds by visiting Assinie Beach, with its lush greenery and beautiful shoreline.
There’s no better way to experience beautiful sunrises and sunsets on Africa’s West Coast than on Assinie Beach. Beyond relaxing on the beach, it’s excellent for snorkeling, sailing and water skiing.
Farafina Beach is located in the Grand Bassam Lagune area. As you drive to the beach, you will notice a beautiful and clean beach surrounded by palm trees, gold sand that glistens in the African sun, and huge waves from the ocean.
Farafina is perfect for those who want a relaxing day on the beach and those who want to dream of the ideal stroll along an idyllic beach. The beach is surrounded by restaurants, boutique hotels and accommodations for those who want to spend more than a day at Farafina Beach.
There’s a restaurant and bar located on the beach where visitors rave about the local beer.
