The water under the Aberdeen bridge shows different faces. Watching people collecting shellfishes in the swamp in one side, and water taxies moving between the airport and Aberdeen port in another side was a good experience in Freetown!

Walk, jog, run, or cruise from a vehicle on the beach locale which offers a boardwalk style beach experience. Plenty of places to eat, party, and lounge on the Aberdeen beach front strip

As my experience in Freetown and whole of Sierra Leone is beyond words, I always connect to Aberdeen Bridge as this was the gateway to the city of Freetown.. The day I reached and the day i left.

Aberdeen is a nice place to relax after a hard days work. where you feel the sea breeze sipping a glass of wine or a bottle of beer and listen to soft music...depending on the time of the day.

I was staying in Aberdeen. It's a nice place to stay... Very near to lumbi beach. It's a very nice location and a kind of corner of Freetown. On weekends this place is totally full with locals.

This place is worth visiting as it shows full grand of Atlantic ocean and the beach. Of course, it is not developed and without bathrooms but there's a few beach bars that can provide enough beer.
