What to do in Cotonou

Right near your Golden Tulip hotel, you can stroll through the Haie Vive district and be sure to see the Place des Martyrs, a historic place in memory of the inhabitants who fought for the country’s independence. In the center, you can visit the Church of Saint Michel as well as the Notre-Dame-de-Miséricorde Cathedral, a must-see in Cotonou: constructed in the 19th century, it is the main Catholic sanctuary in the city, and it stands out thanks to the large red and white stripes on its facade. The Zinsou Foundation and the Place de l'Etoile Rouge are also worth a visit. To the southwest of the city center, you will find the beach of Fidjrossè: lively all year round, it is line by palm and coconut trees. You can relax on a sun lounger or have a drink while watching the merry-go-round of fishermen who bring their nets back to the beach. In the north of Cotonou, you can spend unforgettable moments by the immense Nokoué Lake.

Top 3 culinary specialties of Cotonou

In Cotonou and throughout the south of the country, corn dough is the staple of Beninese cuisine. One of the best-known culinary specialties is akassa: it is a fermented corn dough with a sauce made of tomatoes, onions, fish and peppers. Amiwo, also called "red dough", is also a traditional dish that normally serves as a side dish: it is a dough made from corn flour, prepared with tomatoes, onions, dried shrimp and oil. It is generally eaten with chicken precooked in a broth and then fried. On the sweet side, tévi, fried yam donuts, are a must. Do you want to transform your stay into a gourmet getaway?
