Explore More About Assinie:

Assinie-Mafia is located 80 kilometers east of Abidjan along the coast of the Gulf of Guinea. Access to the area is by road A100 going east from Abidjan then turning right to the B-107 road (Route Assinie) then Route Assinie-Mafia along the coast. The road ends at Assinie-Mafia. Assinie-Mafia is a long narrow settlement along the coast on both sides of the outlet of Aby Lagoon.

The Assinie area starts at the location of the Paul-Emile Durand cottage in the west bordered to the south by the ocean and accessible by the Assinie-Mafia road. Opposite the town of Assinie-Mafia is a narrow peninsula (from 100m to 1000m wide) extending from the west and 15 km long which is occupied by luxury villas and huts. Access is by car, private boats, or canoes across the lagoon.

The mouth of the lagoon which marks the end of the Assinie-Mafia peninsula is called La Passe where the high-rise resort and the smoking of tchoukourou is very popular.

The area is a favorite destination for wealthy inhabitants of Abidjan for the weekend.

Assinie-Mafia was the location of the film French Fried Vacation (Les Bronzés) in 1978. This resort is popular with the wealthier inhabitants of Abidjan and belongs to Selim Tristan Kone, a descendant of the first family to have lived in this place on the Ivory Coast.
