Togo is known for their great beaches, among them being Aneho Beach and Lome Beach. Some of the beaches are home to white sands and it's easy to get privacy. Put on your swimwear, grab a drink and splash around in the calm ocean.

Visit a fishing village

Togo is home to many fishing villages with close knit communities ready to welcome you. To find the best ones, and safer spots, ask the hotel you are staying at which fishing villages allow for day trips and what activities can do while there.

One cannot visit Togo and not visit Lome. The streets of Lome is filled with vibrant markets, friendly people and good food. Places to visit include the central Independence Monument, the Congressional Palace that houses the national museum that exhibits West African jewelry, masks, musical instruments and pottery.
