Lagoons, beaches and fishermen in Sud-Camoé, Côte d’Ivoire


Plage Assinie assouende is located between the lagoons and the Atlantic Ocean, not far from Côte d’Ivoire – Ghana border.

That’s the reason the lagoons remind me of the backwaters in Kerala, the South of India. Especially when I saw for palm trees all around the water and locals waiting for the boat at those little huts.

But Kerala’s backwater lagoons region are much bigger.

Boatman. You can do a return trip to swim, or a guided boat tour around the lagoons.

The guesthouse that I was staying was just across the lagoon, photos taken while waiting for the boatman to come, who is really nice, even went to buy ingredient and cook the meals. It was really quiet at the moment in the guesthouse (Mammy Wata), and that side in general. Most restaurants were closed.

While walking along the beach, I found out fishermen here seem cool. I see so many of such boats.

There are big waves along the coast here. It’s Atlantic sea, right.

Fishermen trying to drag the boat on the shore. It doesn’t seem so easy to do so!

Not easy to swim in such huge waves, play with local kids then. They love being on pictures, I hope they dpn’t mind I put this picture here.
