    Freetown from the hills

    by 1W1V Written Sep 19, 2005

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Freetown is a city sandwiched between the Atlantic Ocean and the mountains.

    If you move from the beach to the hill top, the temperature can be quite different and the views can be truly breathtaking.

    These pix are not the best but give you already a little idea of what can be Freetown from the hills.

    Lumley Beach

    by 1W1V Written Sep 19, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Freetown itself, there is a very nice beach that is mainly use by locals.

    On Sat. it is not that busy !! Probably the best day of the week to relax a few hours !!!

    FYI, there is nearly no wave in Freetown. Swimming in the ocean is very safe !

    Beaches along Freetown's peninsula

    by mi5chelle Written May 22, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While many beaches are exceptional along the Freetown peninsula, I recommend being more adventurous and head past beach "River Number Two," which is now getting crowded and you have to pay $2.50 for parking, to a more remote and pristine beach, "Tokkeh." Great lunch of fresh oysters, fish, chips, salad and even lobster will run you $10 or less. Ask for Hassan by the spot where the old hotel swimming pool was. Palm tree huts are available and overnighting is awesome. Bring your own drinks.

    National Cotton Tree

    by kim83_50158 Written Mar 22, 2003

    This is a national monument! There is a national museum nearby as well. The museum is the only one in the world to claim a tree as an address. They put lights on the trunk of the tree. Whether those light up at night, I am not sure, but it is a huge prized monument.

    The beach of Sussex is also incredible.

    Nearby, there is a nice guesthouse managed by a mix italian/SL family known from everybody in Freetown. Franco will welcome you like a member of his family.
