#5 of 12 in Historic Sites in Cameroon
See Le Phare De Kribi, a century-old structure that's still in use for ships today. Built in 1906, it was constructed to help ships used for the trade of ivory and rubber navigate the area. You can climb to the top of the 15 m (49 ft) tall lighthouse, although the building is closed to tourists. Three white lights on the top flash every 12 seconds and can be seen for 14 nautical miles.

  • Living memory of the past, the site of the lighthouse was developed but the maintenance and the lack of opportunity to visit disappoint

  • Nature, authenticity, hardness, beauty... Attention respect the market price in order to not pollute the population by our "abundance". This is not from radinisme but out of respect for them as for us. If we want to stay there yet (and safely), focus on your guides (taxi, taxi-moto) who will be happy to negotiate for you! Don't cause not, and encouraging not petty crime.

  • Located near the marina and the hotel of the lighthouse. But poorly maintained with wastes in the vicinity.

  • À few histotical sites to visit around here. Very nice shore with Brown sand. Could do better with the shops & bars around.
  • Very nice place to relax and swim...
  • Historic place (German Lighthouse built 1906).
  • Historic site of the city of kribi. We can discover the landing ports the colonial expeditions and the embarkations of slavery for many years.

  • Not too maintained, one of the only remnants of the Germans in kribi that even the kribiens are forgetting
