Island-hop, hike, and unwind at Iles de Los, a group of islands lying off Kaloum Peninsula. With golden sand beaches, palms, and forested interiors, the islands offer excellent swimming, sailing, and snorkeling opportunities. Hire a private pirogue for the 40-minute ride from Conakry. Discover why many consider the area an inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson's novel, "Treasure Island." Once a center for the Atlantic slave trade, today three islands are inhabited and have elementary amenities, while the remaining four are not. Motor vehicles are not permitted on the islands, but numerous trails provide plenty of hiking. Try the local seafood specialties of this well-known fishing area.
