Cape Coast

4.3
While it may seem like a regular fishing port at first glance, Cape Coast bears traces of the Portuguese, British, Danish, Swedish, and the Dutch colonists who variously ruled here. Sightseeing in Cape Coast reveals the resulting cultural diversity and colonial structures like forts, trading posts, lodges, and a World Heritage-listed castle. The town came into the spotlight thanks to U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama, who considers Cape Coast her ancestral home, having traced her roots back to a six-year-old slave sold to work at a South Carolina plantation. Places to visit in Cape Coast also include a slave trade departure point and universities, plus the local mascot--a giant crab statue. Cape Coast is in Central Region. Whether you only want to go to Cape Coast, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly Ghana itinerary planning tool .

Where to stay in Cape Coast

The majority of hotels in Tozeur line Aboulkacem Chebbi Avenue, an east-west thoroughfare some 700 m (2,300 ft) from the bus station. Here you can easily hail a cab to explore the rest of the desert town and start your tours into the Sahara Desert. On the main highway at the town's outskirts, a Berber-style hotel focuses on providing an authentic cultural experience for all visitors (plus a courtyard pool). Remember that most of the restaurants in Tozeur do not serve alcohol, so bars in tourist hotels are the only place where you can have an alcoholic drink.
