Coasts

Ghana's only coastline is in the south of the country. Edged by the Atlantic Ocean, it has plenty of surfing spots. There are also a number of 17th and 18th century castles and forts that can be visited around this area.

The fauna and flora

Despite the deforesting and hunting that has gone on in recent years in Ghana the forests are still rich with rare tree species, like the mahogany, the cedar and the giant cotton tree.

In terms of the fauna, Ghana's parks and reserves are home to a wide variety: leopards, hyenas, warthogs, elephants, monkeys, buffaloes, antelopes.

Arts and culture

Ghana is a land with several different identities and the birthplace of the Pan-African Movement. A former English colony, Ghana still bears traces of its past. The forts and castles lining the coast are a reminder of Ghana's role in the slave trade. The culture of this small African country has also been shaped by the customs and traditions of the different ethnic people who live in it. Ghana's culture can be discovered by strolling through the markets with their shimmering counters and by visiting the country's breathtaking natural sites.
