When you are visiting the Cape Coast Castle, you can already have a look at the colourful harbour that lies right behind it. There, you can see the fishermen bring their fish in, organising their nets, and checking their colourfully painted "pinasses", wooden boats that are typically African.

Normally Ghanaians are not happy when you take pictures of them, but here in the harbour they don't mind the tourists and they just work on, so you have all the time to watch them. You can also go there without entering the Castle: than you just have to go passed the building towards the east, and you'll automatically end up between the boats.

Review Helpfulness: 3 out of 5 stars
