Cape Coast Travel Guide: 72 reviews and 355 photos

The capital of Ghana's Central Region is Cape Coast. Not a very big, but very pleasant city that is completely surrounded by green and blue: The Gulf of Guinea with its blue water and wide beaches to the south, a lagune with dirty, but blue water to the west and green hills full of banana- and palmtrees to the other sides.

In between this colourful environment you'll find the Caribbean-ish city of Cape Coast, with a pleasant centre and good places for going out, and of course the big and old Cape Coast Castle; an important and horrible memory of the British slave trade: an absolute must-see during a visit to the country.

    Note there are three types: beef, mutton (lamb) and chicken gizzard (which is like the rubbery texture of tripe). So just ask before you buy. Enjoy !

    Fort Victoria looks like a nice place to visit! One of these day I hope I will. Interesting pigs on the beach!!! Norman :)
