The Loos Islands (Îles de Los) are an archipelago of three islands not far from Conakry in Guinea. They are just a few kilometers away, but the complete opposite to the dusty and noisy capital, a perfect escape for relaxation.

Other destinationsEdit


Get inEdit

From Boloobinnet (or Boulbinet) in Kaloum, small boats (piroques in French) head towards the islands. Kassa is only 20 minutes away and many boats leave during the day. There is also a public ferry leaving at the harbour, on the other side of Kaloum, to Kassa. But it does not leave frequently. It is a little bit more difficult to get to the other islands, either plan plenty of time to wait for other passengers at Boloobinnet, or hire a boat for 250000 GNF or more (bargaining needed).

Get aroundEdit



Swimming, relaxing, hanging around with local people in the villages or with people from Conakry who spend the weekend here.


Obviously, seafood is your choice.



Hotels on the islands are approximately 300000-500000 GNF.
