Bureh Beach on the Freetown Peninsula

Just a couple of hours drive from Freetown, we got to some beatiful beaches stretching along the road. Our stop for the next couple of days would be at Bureh Beach where there were only two restaurants, one guest house, one surf shack and our tents. Life there was easy. We cooked our own meals when we wanted and ordered food when we were feeling lazy. I was out surfing for sunrise and sunset and was relaxing when the ocean was more calm during the day. It was almost too nice, as I felt more like staying longer instead of doing long driving days and bush camping. I could have calmed myself with the thaught of that I could always go back, but the only thing was that the Chinese had planned on building resorts further down the beach. With lots of tourists it might end up like anywhere else in the World, but for now it was still quite a paradise.
