    Ave van Vollenhoven

    Fondest memory: Ave van Vollenhoven is one of the main streets in the centre of Cotonou. The street cut through the city from Jonquet on the western side of centre to Grand Marche (Dantokpa Market) and the the bridge over Lagune de Cotonou on the eastern side of the city. It is easy to orientate when you are in this street. Look after the concrete water tower called "Chateau d'eau Maro Militaire", and you know you are in the middle of the street.

    Boulevard de la Marina (Beach road)

    by georeiser Written Nov 6, 2010
    Boulevard de la Marina, Cotonou, Benin

    Fondest memory: The Beach road, Boulevard de la Marina, goes all the way from the airport on the western side of Cotonou to the Plakodji area on the eastern side of the city. The western part of the road is nice with official buildings, hotels, private residences and gardens. The eastern side and the harbour area is more poor and look like other African streets in the harbour areas.

    Fondest memory: Boulevard Steinmetz is one of the most famous streets in Cotonou. The large 4 lanes street goes all the way from the Vossa area at Lake Nokoue, crossing Avenida van Vollenhoven and down to the Cathedral Librairie Notre-Dame.

    Fondest memory: The streets in Cotonou are wide and crowded. A lot of Zemijan motorcycle taxis are cruising around in the streets with their yellow waistcoat.
