  • It is very nice, it has a very easy access by car from Liberia and then a few steps and you're. It has an area to swim wide. Some areas cover at once with what care with children. We went early one Sunday and it was a delight, was later filled with local people who was going to spend the day. The only downside is that they charge you "will" to use the road and again to take care of the car... But there was no problem with 1000 ¢. There was a peddler who sold us very rich skewers and drink and seller without problem.
