Down Beach, Limbe

2.8
#3 of 8 in Outdoors in Cameroon
Located in the heart of town, Down Beach offers a calm seaside ambience filled with musicians, communal umbrella-shaded tables, and food stands serving tasty food and beverages. Fishers patiently go about their business, food vendors prepare delicious spicy seafood dishes, and the occasional horse may run across the black volcanic beach. Take a walk on the promenade between the street and the water to experience the local way of life, and afterwards cool off with a dip in the ocean. If you do sit down to eat, expect persistent peddlers. Our Limbe day trip planner makes visiting Down Beach and other Limbe attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

It is also one good place to buy fresh produce, fish, crabs and other. For a full sole, counting between 5000 and 10000 depending on the weight.
