Picture this: a tropical climate, golden beaches, exotic wildlife, diverse culture and lush rainforests. If this sounds like your next dream trip, then get ready to explore the coastal nation of Liberia! Located in western Africa, this country is home to four million people and was founded by freed American and Caribbean slaves. Brimming with natural wonders, it also has a rich cultural vibe and plenty for visitors to see.
Liberia is well-known for its beaches, most notably surfing beaches near Robertsport or the stretch of beaches surrounding its capital, Monrovia. Visit Silver and Cece beaches for the best experiences, as both are stocked with bars, restaurants, entertainment and family fun. Yearning for a little alone time? Venture past the crowds of Cece beach, where miles of warm sand and sun create the perfect environment for a little solitude.
If hiking and adventure is more to your taste, be sure to add Mountain Woligizi to your list! Surrounded by dense jungle, the hiking trail up the mountain leads you to the nation’s highest point. As you make your way to the top, waterfalls and wildlife will be sure to greet you. Once at the top, you will be able to see Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea stretch out before you. Deep-sea fishing is also an option for ocean enthusiasts. Located off the shore of Monrovia, a deep ocean trench is full of big fish for those who want to check that experience off their bucket list.
