Sierra Leone just came out of a brutal civil war, so travel at your own risk. The beaches are beautiful but make sure to travel in a big group and with one or two local guides/guards watching your belonging. Anything that's not being guarded can grow legs ang walk away.

Aberdeen Surf - I wouldn't hold my breath to get to surf this beach - hardly ever ridable waves - though if you do get in, be sure to keep your mouth closed as the water is dirty from Freetown's runoff. Not worth it really.
