Hut in Île Room

Perched on the boulders above a delightful little beach are a handful of simple huts which, if they were almost anywhere else in the world, would be a classic backpacker hangout. In Guinea, though, the almost total dearth of visitors has meant that the huts have been allowed to fade and become tatty and quite overpriced.

The in-house restaurant (seafood mains around GFr100,000) with its rasta vibes is a good spot to chill.
