You could always buy them at the uk airport on the way out. There is from memory a small supermarket opposite Kombo, don't know what it sells but would be surprised if it doesn't sell these items. Suntan lotion I've found to be expensive in TG.

There are quite a few "supermarkets" around that sell all sorts of soaps, shampoos, toothpaste etc. Don't worry. Marouns Supermarket is only a short distance along the main road if nothing more local.

Any good toiletries are expensive here. Much better to buy at the airport as granny suggests and bring with you. That way you save luggage allowance but can get the toiletries you like.

There are two supermarkets that sell toiletries, a small range of known brands of sunscreen and toothpaste but a large range of African ones, all within two minutes walk of Kombo Beach Hotel.
