Somalia Favorites

  • Beaches

    Somalia has the potential to become a premier beach destination in Africa. With a coastline of 3,025 in length, which makes it the longest in mainland Africa, there are a few beaches here. Beaches here are practically undeveloped and you can have many of them all to yourself. Now with the Equator going through the country, the temperature here is...

  • Birding

    Though it's not an interest of mine and I didn't come here for it, it was nice to learn a little bit about the birds here.

  • Blue Skies and Beaches

    Somalia has not been commercialized. There aren't that many tourists and you have the whole country to yourself(almost). Somalia is very hot but worth the trip. The people are very friendly and helpful.

  • Understanding

    Be open minded and enjoy your stay. Even though some places in the south are feuding, somalis welcome all visitors to their homeland.

People will go out...

    I don't know that I'd go there right now. It seems to still be in some turmoil. People, people, people. Everyone I met could not have been nicer. When the place went nutty after my last visit, I felt bad for all those who had befriended me. Incredible scale of accommodation levels.
