Visit Robertsport, the jewel in Liberia’s surfing crown, with year-round warm weather and long waves that peel along the coast in gorgeous arcs providing ideal conditions for bodysurfing, surfing, or sliding as the Liberians refer to it.
The historic cottonwood tree into which freed American slaves carved their names after landing on these shores from Norfolk in 1829 stands to this day providing shade to laidback campers, but it is the emerald bay beyond that’s the star of the show.
By day you’ll share the waves with the friendly locals, by night you’ll kick back at the beachside bar and restaurant with a sundowner and vibrant Liberian hipco tunes, tucking in to Liberia’s hearty dishes to fuel you for another exciting day in search of the next big wave.
Nearby is the stunning tidal lagoon of Lake Piso, providing wonderful opportunities for keen fishermen who can rub shoulders with the local fishermen to bring in the catch of the day. Along with exploring its interesting World War II history, visitors can spend their days in its warm waters swimming and canoeing.
