Easy to access for a day trip from Conakry. Room island is wonderful to swim and relax. I would have loved to spend the night there as well.

It is only a short boat ride from Conakry. There are dense palm forests and nice sandy beaches. Friendly local people. Best time to visit from November to March (dry season).
