This is a lovely beach in your reach when you visit Libreville, Gabon. Take a short boat trip the capital city, and you’ll find yourself in a white-sand beach and a very relaxing atmosphere. The trees with blue sea and yellow sand, a therapeutic view. Dress like a local or tourist, it doesn’t matter. Wear what you feel most comfortable in.

When to visit

Libreville just like all of Gabon has an equatorial climate and is warm year-round. So anytime is really a popular time to visit. However, June to mid-September would be best time to visit due to less rainfall. The rest of the months tend to have high rainfall.
