Grand Bassam

2.6
Lying on the southeast Ivory Coast, Grand Bassam not only boasts golden beaches and French colonial architecture, but also holds the title of World Heritage Site. Considered a pristine example of 19th- and early 20th-century French colonial town planning, the town draws visitors to walk the bridge between the former French and African districts, now known as the Old Town (Ancien Bassam) and the bustling commercial sector (Nouveau Bassam). When you need to take a break from your Grand Bassam sightseeing, head to the beach for a lazy day in the sun. Grand Bassam is in Lagunes Region.
