Sierra Leone: No 2 River Beach

With a “fantastic” name like “Number 2 River Beach”, this wide sandy beach is very popular with both locals and the occasional tourists. Tables and restaurants line up the white sand right next to the surf, while the river joining the ocean here allows you to literally float into the sea. Some spectacular views of the coastal mountains nearby.

    The No.2 River got it’s name in colonial times when a unit of soldiers, the 2nd regiment, on a long marching exercise, dropped their kits and raced into the river to cool down, unaware of the quicksand on the riverbed. Most of them drowned.
