It is one of four communes of Abidjan south of Ébrié Lagoon, the others being Treichville, Koumassi and Marcory. Felix Houphouet Boigny International Airport (French: Aéroport international Félix Houphouët-Boigny or Aéroport international Abidjan) is located in Port-Bouët. Port-Bouët had not been inhabited until around 1930. The famous Port Bouët/Petit Bassam lighthouse (French: Phare de Port Bouët (Petit Bassam)) was built in the early 1930s.[1][2]
