Located in West Africa, Sierra Leone is often referred to as a “rough diamond” country. It is said to be a rough diamond because of its many precious stones present in the country. It is a destination of exceptional natural beauty, with its exquisite rainforest, white-sand beaches, fascinating history, and culture.

Paradise beckons along a silky Atlantic coastline. Sierra Leone undoubtedly possesses some of Africa’s finest and most undeveloped beaches. The most remote destination of Sierra Leone, “Turtle Island” offers paradisiacal beaches and small local communities that still nowadays live totally isolated from the world. It is possible to travel there by private boat.

Another thing you will notice when visiting Sierra Leone is the smiling people and the relaxed vibe of its small nation, “Sweet Salone” as known by the locals because it is one of the friendliest countries in the African continent.

In 2006, a film Blood Diamond was shot in Sierra Leone with Leanardo DiCaprio as the lead star. This movie gave the country a new emerging picture, gradually receding from its negative reputation and tracking back travelers to their corner to rediscover the country’s many charms.
