Grand Bassam, Ivory Coast

The original capital of Côte d’Ivoire, the colonial town of Grand Bassam suffered a decline from its heyday as a seaport until the 1930s, but that led to its revival as a resort town beginning in the 1960s, and now it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Palms line its biscuit-colored shore, and you’ll be hard pressed to beat its Ivorian seafood.
