what to do

Our host village is placed in between the Lagoon and the Atlantic Ocean. Our white-sand beaches make the perfect setting for you to swim, relax, contemplate the fishermen and perhaps get to know local people.

We can organize for you a fishing activity with the local fishermen. You can also visit Ghana’s largest lagoon: 40 km long and 8 km wide. The place is well-known by birdwatchers. Visitors can also choose to go on a board trip to one of the lagoon’s wild isles.

You will be a modern Robinson Crusoe, alone on the island with the only company of birds, fishes and… who knows.

We also suggest a visit at the local market and historical places like Fort Prinzenstein, the only fort in the eastern territory of the Volta Region and Cape St Paul Lighthouse. Other places require the all day for the trip.

One special activity is to visit a traditonal pottery site. There you can see how clay pottery is made. You can even learn how to do it yourself, classes can be organized on request if booked on time.

Or  maybe you want just to relax while reading a book on African literature and history (we have a little but well-selected library) or to sink into the village sounds and fall asleep with the rhythm of the ocean waves.

The Ewe people are the region’s ethnic group. They are guardians of many believes, traditions and…superstitions. You will have in fact the chance to visit some sacred shrines where rituals, dances and local ceremonies are performed. You should ask in advance for us to enquire whether they are going to perform the time you’ll be there.
