Lion Bar

Guesthouse in Grand Popo

Down a track from the main street, you'll easily find this reggae land by following Bob Marley's languorous beats. It's the hideout of choice for Cotonou's expat beatniks, and oozes peace and love: cocktails flow at all hours of the day and night, rooms are spartan yet funky and the shared facilities surprisingly clean.

Daily specials cost CFA2900. It's right on the beach and you're free to pitch your tent.
