Discover “the Paris of West Africa”

The economic and cultural crossroads of West Africa, Abidjan is the second-largest French speaking city in the world. As you sail along the Ebrie lagoon into port, you’ll be greeted by a cityscape of gleaming skyscrapers, but beyond the surface, local life pulses to a unique rhythm. The city is divided into ten districts, each with their own distinct feel and tropical soul, and all yours to discover Azamara Club Cruises® on voyages to West Africa.

Start in the central district of Le Plateau. The beating heart and business hub of the city, it’s home to some striking examples of modern African architecture, like the towering La Pyramide, and iconic St. Paul Cathedral. The glamorous Cocody district is where you’ll find foreign embassies along wide boulevards, green garden squares, and palm-lined beaches.

Treichville offers a totally authentic local experience. Visit the CAVA open-air market and wander through stalls as artisans make handcrafted jewelry, artwork, masks, and more. If you need to refuel, try a cassava curry or gblissi tebil (whole roasted plantain). After dark, this neighborhood is the epicenter for exciting nightlife, with bars, restaurants, and clubs playing local Coupé-Décalé dance music. Some say Abidjan is Africa’s version of New York. Others say Paris. One thing is certain, it’s another example of the unrivalled destinations you’ll encounter on our West Africa cruises.
