Located on Tombo Island, Conakry is the archetypal African colonial city overlooking the ocean. Its historic center boasts a rich and varied architectural heritage. The emblematic monuments of Guinea’s capital are the Camayanne Mausoleum (final resting place of political leader Sékou Touré), the National Museum of Guinea and the Botanical Garden. For a taste of Conakry’s ambiance, head to Madina and Niger markets, and then to Port of Boulbinet, where you can climb to the top of the lighthouse for a beautiful panorama. Boulevard du Commerce and Avenue de la République serve as the borders of Almamya, a district where fruits and vegetables, poultry, meat, fish and other local products are sold in abundance. Finally, make your way to the Loos Islands by boat or canoe, to enjoy the pristine sands and turquoise waters.
