Ghana boasts captivating islands that draw in numerous visitors each year. Here are some notable ones:
Situated in Keta Lagoon within the Keta – Volta Region, Seva Island spans approximately 2.7 square miles. Accessible by road from Konu near Anyako, this island offers sandy beaches, creating an ideal spot for a relaxing holiday. With a rich bird-watching scene, various bird species make stops on Seva Island. The first denomination to establish a church in the main town of this island was the AME Zion. Additionally, the church built several schools, serving as junior high schools today. Residents faced challenges in pursuing formal education, having to travel between Seva and Anyako using canoes or crossing the lagoon.
Nestled in Axim Bay of the Atlantic, Bobowasi Island is a stunning destination just 1.8 km from Axim town and the Axim castle. Originally a dense forest, access was restricted due to the belief that dwarfs inhabited it. Arezi, a brave man, ventured into the forest, encountering the dwarfs and surviving their attack. The island derived its name from the incident, evolving over the years to Bobowasi Island.
