Acunda Island is a true unspoilt paradise, a tiny island in the Bijagos Archipelago, you can walk around the island in 5 minutes and fish from anywhere, including your cabin, and the bar area.
Forget the rest of the world, and surround yourself with some of the best fishing on the planet, a huge diversity of species and methods and excellent hospitality throughout your stay. Imagine spending the evening on a sandy beach, cold drink in hand, freshly caught Snapper being grilled on a driftwood fire behind you as you lay back in your deckchair, the waves lapping at your feet as you watch the rod tip tapping away until an unknown fish makes your reel sing.
This could be anything from a small grouper to a 250 lb ray or even larger shark / guitar fish. Popper and livebait fishing is exceptional, every fish in Guinea Bissau is angry and none will ever give up the fight easily. Add to this the chances of world record cobia, jacks and tarpon and you have what can only be described as a fisherman’s paradise.
