Sierra Leone is a very good place for tourist to visit and feel the peace, love, harmony and beauty of the land itself and that is why I am very much confident and calm in writing this piece because I am sure of what I am saying and I believe after highlighting the goodies of this beach, you won’t hesitate to come and feel it. Most at times, I do ask myself why there is so much beauty in Sierra Leone and we don’t show them to the outside world as other nations are doing? But I can’t blame them, maybe they are not aware of the beauties the land has. In this short and precise article, I will present the most beautiful beach in Sierra Leone specifically in the capital city, Freetown Sierra Leone.

Lumley Beach is the most used, beautiful and popular beach in Sierra Leone and it is situated in the Western part of Sierra Leone’s capital, Freetown. This beach has a history of not only the most popular beach but also the most used beach by the citizens and also tourists or foreigners who jet in for a vacation or other important issues. The beach connects another lovely and beautiful beach called “Aberdeen” and they both are joined together technically, so as such, I described them as ‘twin beaches’ because the distance from Lumley beach and Aberdeen beach is not too long and they are interconnected. The beach is so stunning, beautiful and cool for people to enjoy and have fun together and that is why the beach has a peaceful, appealing air and fascinating view from the sea. The sand of the beach is one that I can tell you will like when you visit the beach because it is so soft, warm and cold. One thing I can tell you again about the beach is that it is well structured and that is why you will find out that the beach can be accessed by all citizens and other foreigners and that is the best part of it because the term ‘racism’ is not present in there and everyone can go there and enjoy without being harassed or thinking about apprehension due to the beach’s security that is well secured and safe to use.

Despite me being Sierra Leonean and I want my country to gain more recognition and increase tourism presence does not mean that I can’t point out the goodies it has and that is why I can assure you that you won’t regret feeling the beautiful atmosphere of this beach and you won’t regret visiting the most peaceful country on earth. There is so much facilities the beach has which cannot be highlighted in this piece but I believe everyone wants to live in a place that is secure, beautiful, peaceful and lovely and that is what Lumley beach is made of.
