If you are here reading this now, I am sure you have some sort of idea of the amazing empty beaches, and breaking waves along Ghana’s coast line. Despite Ghana’s stable political history, safe travel history, bathtub warm water, and little risk from sharks and friendly locals with zero localism; Ghana remains an undiscovered surfing paradise. There are numerous point breaks making right after right down the coast line some of these breaks will carry you right by 400 year old colonial castles. One of the reasons why Ghana is relatively un-discovered is the lack of surf infrastructure but with Green Bug Adventures and Black Star Surf Shop you have very little to worry about.

When you are not in the water you will have drumming lessons to learn a little of Ghana’s rich culture, the drum will be yours to take home at the end of the trip. There are many other day trips and activities to do when out of the water that can also be arranged through the surf shop.

Escape3PointsAfter a week of guided surfing and enjoying the social surfing atmosphere in Busua it will be time for you to travel a little further afield and enjoy a wonderful week stay at a beach side Eco-lodge within walking distance from some of the best waves in the Cape Three Points Complex of Ghana. This is also a great place to just relax on the beautiful deserted beaches or do some exploring of the wonderful surrounding areas.

This trip will allow you to have 2 weeks of uninterrupted surfing with all the details of transportation, lodging and meals taken care of for you.

Cape Three Points view GhanaDay 9: Since the surf tour with Black Star is now complete and you have explored some great surf in the area and hopefully feel comfortable with some more independent exploring you will be transferred to Escape 3 Points Eco-Lodge very near Cape Three Points village. You will check into the remote Eco-lodge right on an awesome beach with a little point break out front and then a large right break a little further down the beach.

Days 10-14: You will stay at a wonderful beach side eco-lodge on a seculded beach during this time spending your days surfing some of the best waves in Ghana and exploring the area. There is so much to do in the area even beyond the world class surfing.

Cape Three Points village is about a 5 minute walk down the beach from the lodge where you can mix with the people in the village or go and check out the furthest southern point in Ghana and climb the lighthouse there.

Cape Three Points Reserve is a good hike from the lodge taking your inland through rubber and palm plantations to a rain forest reserve that is said to have the highest levels of biodiversity in the country.

About an hour hike to the east is Akwidaa that you visited during the surf tour. At Akwidaa there is plenty to do, take a canoe trip up the Ezile river until the mangroves literally surround you. You can also take a cooking lesson from some of the women in the village. There are also two great eco-lodges in the area that you can enjoy a cold Star beer and a brilliant lunch at either Green Turtle Lodge or Ezile Bay Eco-Lodge.

To the west you can hike through the capes to Princess Town where there are a number of surf breaks along the way along with great little fishing villages. In Princess Town there is a colonial castle with an interesting history you can explore. In one of the villages on the way to Princess Town there is a crocodile fetish priest who can summon crocodiles, which make for an interesting experience.
