Aberdeen, Freetown

2.8
Explore a clean coastal neighborhood known for its fine dining, well-maintained tourist facilities, and long stretch of beaches at Aberdeen. First founded in 1829, the area initially served to provide accommodation for liberated slaves. After the Ebola outbreak of 2014-15, many Chinese businesses took advantage of the situation and started to develop residences, high-end hotels, and an attractive beachfront. Mix recreation with leisure by going for a swim or a cycling tour through the suburb. Beach bars make a perfect place to watch the sunset. Aberdeen is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Freetown Edition.

  • I live in a hotel along the sea. Sea-to-Sea seems to be one of the best places in Freetown. The entire area is full of restaurants and coffee shops/bars. Because it's the weekend, there are a lot of people on the sand. The whole place looks like a good place to relax. Unfortunately, there is a lot of rubbish on the sea. The hotel told me not to walk naked because there might be sharp objects in the sand.

  • Lively, vibrant and always interesting. Full range of local shops and international supermarkets. Good accommodation options and excellent choice of restaurants. A step away from Lumley Beach.  more »
