The capital city of Liberia, Monrovia is known for its exhibits on national culture and history displayed at the Liberia National Museum. Monrovia is surrounded by the beauty of palm-lined beaches like Silver and CeCe.The country is an unspoiled eco-tourist destination virgin with beach towns along the coast like the port of Buchanan and laid-back Robertsport which is known for its strong surf. It is famous for its beautiful Atlantic-coastal beaches and beach houses. These houses are now shaky as they carry a strong sense of the history of the First Liberian Civil War in the 1980s. Not forgetting its rainforests and thriving savannahs with stomping elephants, angelic tweeting birds, and screening monkeys that give a wild soundtrack. Liberia’s natural regions are teeming with unique splendor. It’s an immense coastal plain, 30 to 50 km wide, sandy, with golden beaches spreading to bar enclosed lagoons and mangrove swamps. Along the parallel regions lies Cape Mount, being the highest mountain in the country with about 1000 feet (305 meters) in the northwest.
