Cape Mount County
Discover Cape Mount County
Located on Liberia's picturesque far western coast, Grand Cape Mount County is a true paradise. Home to several ethnic groups, including the Vai, Mandingo, and Gola people, this county boasts a rich history and a vibrant cultural tapestry as well as pristine beaches, perfect point breaks, wetlands, lush green forests, and waterfalls.
The coastal town of Robertsport is a surfer's paradise, with some of the best waves in West Africa. The consistent, high-quality waves draw surfers from around the world, making it a must-visit destination for surfers of any level. This small fishing village also provides the most beautiful stretches of beach for sun and water lovers. Nana's Lodge, Vartilda's Guesthouse, Philip's Guesthouse, and the Robertsport Surf Club are among the accommodation options right by the beach. Robertsport is three to five hours from Monrovia, depending on road conditions, making it an excellent destination for a weekend or week-long adventure.
Visitors will be captivated by the stunning scenery of Lake Piso Multi-Use Reserve, which contains Liberia's largest lake, Lake Piso, and the humid wetlands surrounding it. The lake is also rife with history. In World War II, it served as a base for the Allies' seaplanes, and the islands at its center provided refuge for civilians during the First Liberian Civil War.
On the other end of Grand Cape Mount County is a large intact section of Upper Guinean Rainforest called Gola Forest National Park. A new trail system was constructed near the community of Camp Israel, where a three-mile loop trail takes hikers to the breathtaking Elephant Falls.
But the real magic of Grand Cape Mount County lies in its people, known for their warmth and hospitality. Experience traditional dances, go fishing in a traditional fishing boat on Lake Piso, and immerse yourself in the local way of life.
