Explore a clean coastal neighborhood known for its fine dining, well-maintained tourist facilities, and long stretch of beaches at Aberdeen. First founded in 1829, the area initially served to provide accommodation for liberated slaves. After the Ebola outbreak of 2014-15, many Chinese businesses took advantage of the situation and started to develop residences, high-end hotels, and an attractive beachfront. Mix recreation with leisure by going for a swim or a cycling tour through the suburb. Beach bars make a perfect place to watch the sunset. Aberdeen is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , online itinerary creator Edition.
