  • This is a nice respite to have at the edge of Freetown. Lovely to walk along, a bit too much development happening to threaten the natural environment. I miss the ice cream shops!  more »
  • Lumley Beach is a place alone the Beach Road to Aberdeen, Freetown. This beach is one of the most popular beaches around Freetown. The beach area is always kept clean. There are a lots of restaurants, malls, bars, and other amusing places where you can by yourself a whisky and almost every food type. And if you are a gulf player or fan, you could have less to worry about as the the country's gulf club is just a stone throw away. This place has a fine beach sand. The tide level increases in the evening. The Lumley Beach is motor accessible. Here you can have fun doing basic sport activities like juggling, gym,... The beach is attracted by tourists and other people. It's always safer out here. Along here, you can also come in contact with Fishermen catching and selling fishes. The air in this place cool and refreshing. I often visit this place at least once a month.
  • A very long stretch of wonderful beach. One of the best places in Freetown. Crowded on weekends on what is otherwise a peaceful place. The whole stretch is filled with some great restaurants and cafes/bars which makes Sunday night atmosphere so chilling. People throng the beach on public holidays and make the whole street best place to chill. But need to keep the beach a bit more clean.
