Located to the South of Senegal, Guinea-Bissau is a coastal country in West Africa which offers a confluence of West African and Portuguese culture. The country is mostly visited by tourists for its exceptional wild-life and well-maintained and beautiful beaches. The shores are all covered by fishing villages, while the rest of the country is either under forest cover or dusty and dry. Some of the very rare species of sharks, manatees, turtles and hippopotamus are found in the salt-waters of Guinea-Bissau. Some of the island and cities in Guinea-Bissau are Arquipelago Dos Bijagos, Bissau, Gabu, Farim and Bafata.
This place is a confluence of two islands, Bijagos and Arquipelago. The Bijagos islands offer spectacular views with swaying palms, white –powdery sand beaches and cooling breezes. The islanders have a history of pursuits by the Portuguese, but always eluded them as the islands are naturally protected by treacherous sandbanks and swift tides. Archipelago Island is rich in marine life and now has been declared as a biosphere reserve. Rent a car in Guinea-Bissau to visit these two islands that together form national parks.
Bissau is the largest and the capital city of Guinea-Bissau and is also of great economic and educational importance. It is a major port and an administrative and military centre.
