Looking for a respite from the fast paced life of Abidjan? Come to Assine. It is 30 minutes from Grand Bassam and 90 minutes from Abidjan. Assine is a triumvirate of villages: Assinie village, Assinie Mafia and Assouindé. Wealthy weekenders from Abijdan can be seen having fun running their quad bikes up and down the white sandy beach with reckless abandon. Assine beach is a great place to relax, take in the powerful ocean tide and enjoy the clear azure water. Assine is a great destination for watersports enthusiasts and also perfect for windsurfing, kite surfing, canoeing, sport fishing, water skiing and sailing.
