The town of Grand-Popo, its lagoon and beach welcoming sea turtles.
Grand-Popo is a small town in the far southwest of Benin, known for its voodoo culture. Once a major slave port, the town is now celebrated for its long beach lined with coconut palms. On the main road, Villa Karo is a Finnish-African cultural center with art exhibitions. Nearby, Marché de Grand-Popo is a local market next to the Mono River. La Bouche du Roi marks the point where the river enters the Atlantic Ocean.
