The Littoral Province is a province of Cameroon. Its capital is Douala. As of 1987, its population was 1,352,833.

The province is divided into six divisions or préfectures; these are in turn broken down into subdivisions. Presidentially appointed senior divisional officers (prefets) and subdivisional officers sous-prefets) govern each respectively. Traditional leaders, usually referred to as chiefs in English, often preside over particular ethnic groups or villages; nevertheless, many of these wield very little power today, the chiefs' compounds serving as little more than tourist attractions.
