This hotel is by the beach in the Grand Basan. You can choose between the salty ocean waters or the spanky clean swimming pools around the hotel. The food is great with a wide variety. Price is reasonable given the ambiance . I highly recommend this place. Plenty of parking too and the staff ever so helpful.

The Wharf itself cannot be accessed but is a nice view from the beach of Sassandra. The Wharf is no longer connected to the mainland, and no longer it use. Fisher boats are all around it, as the wharf is at the fishermen port

Possibly the last standing (only just) pier, or jetty (in French, embarcadere), erroneously called a "Wharf" in West Africa, and who knows, maybe the last in the whole of Africa, the pier in Sassandra has seen much better days. Built in 1951, the pier (wharf) made Sassandra the No 1 Port of Cote d'Ivoire, until the Port Autonome of Abidjan was created with the cutting of the Vridi Canal, linking the Atlantic Ocean to the Lagoons of Abidjan. Sassandra then remained the No 2 Port until finally San Pedro was completed, in the 1970's. Both Grand Bassam and Port Bouet had pier/jetties(embarcaderes) but none were as important as Sassandra, with its 4 steam driven cranes, and twin track narrow gauge railway. The opening of the Port Autonome of Sassandra saw the beginning of the decline of Sassandra from being a very important town in Cote d'Ivoire, to one now that is totally run down, basically s shanty town, propped up, and only just, by the Fanti fishermen who ply the waters off the coast, but contribute little to the local economy, and dominate the sea front, and much of the hinterland. The pier has been cut of from the land by what appears to be a deliberate act of sabotage, to facilitate the movement of the fishing pirogues, and denial of the pier to any other users. This pier should be at least a part of the National Heritage, and part of an International maritime and industrial heritage! It is worth a visit, if only, like the titanic, it will one day disappear from the face of the earth, and never be seen again. Unless ..... !!
