The best beaches in Guinea are on the Ills de Los, an island a few miles from the capital city of Conakry. The city itself also sits on an island, a colorful city of botanical gardens, colonial architecture, and one surprisingly modern cathedral.

Just outside the city, grab a guide and tour the mythical Kakimbon Caves near the village of Ratoma. You’ll learn their significance to the native Baga people and learn the legends that have been born here. Up in the northeast part of the country, the Fouta Highlands is full of pleasant, rolling hills and beautiful day hikes. It also affords you the opportunity to climb Mount Loura, which, at 4,970 feet, is the highest point in the region.
