ELMINA CASTLE

Lemon beach Resort is located in the neighbourhood of Elmina Castle. You can walk there with us (20 minutes) or we will organize the taxi for you.

This magic and mysterious place is the oldest European structure in sub-Saharan Africa. Construction of Elmina castle was started by the Portuguese in 1482 and was originally completed in 1486. Later colonized by the Dutch in 1637, it was during this time that Elmina attained its highest status.

Upon visiting, you will experience the physical history of the slave trade, the impact of which is still felt beyond the shores of Africa today. Most visitors to Ghana tour Elmina Castle, because of its history as a major trans-Atlantic slave hub. 

Originally, Elmina Castle was not built for the purpose of holding and trading slaves, but instead as a trading post for gold, ivory, spices and other African goods. It is from this trade that the name “Elmina” was derived from the Portuguese name for “Da Costa de el Mina de Ouro” (The Coast of Gold Mines). Entrance fee for guided tour is 45 – 60 GHS (non Ghanaians) per person.

KAKUM NATIONAL PARK

After breakfast we will travel 43 kilometres far to Kakum National Park.

The 607 square kilometres (234 square miles) of protected beautiful rainforest is home to an assortment of wild residents, including forest elephants, giant hogs, flying squirrels, leopards and various species of monkey. However, with much of the elusive wildlife buried deep in the forest‘s flora, there‘s little chance of seeing them. 

Count on the canopy walk. Elevated 40 metres above the forest floor, the 350m-long wooden walkway and various viewing platforms offer spectacular, vertiginous views of the park, although it is unlikely much wildlife will be seen.

There is a simple but informative visitors‘ centre, a café and gift shop. Transport from Lemon to Kakum and back to Lemon is for 600 GHS.

BOAT TOUR ON THE SEA

You can choose the time you want to spend on the sea as well as the speed.

TRADITIONAL FISH MARKET TOUR

Just outside St. George Castle is the Benya lagoon, an amazingly busy fishing harbour, full of colourful traditional fishing boats called pirogues. Fishermen are busy tending nets, going and coming to sea, and selling their catch in the busy harbour fish market. Fishmongers are everywhere and their offerings in full view. This site offers one of Ghana’s greatest photo opportunities. Tour, including the tour guide for 4 people is 100 GHS plus transportation.

NZULEZU - THE VILLAGE ON STILTS

Trip to Nzulezu starts quite early in the morning. Approximately 4 hours drive from Lemon Beach Resort, near the border with Ivory Coast, is a village that is unique in all of Ghana. Nzulezu is a village that has been built on stilts above a lagoon and people are living there like in many years back in time.

And you are welcome to experience it. The whole village is essentially one long pier, called Main Street by the locals, with buildings constructed on both sides. One side of the ‘street’ are living quarters while the other side of the street has businesses, the school, a community centre and other commercial ventures.

Today the village subsists on fishing, farming on nearby land, and tourism. There is also guesthouse at the village, but do not expect modern standards. The village is accessible only by the canoe and it takes approximately 20 minutes to get there. Transportation cost depends on the number of people who will travel to the place. Just let us know and we will organize it for you.

WLI WATERFALLS AND AFADJA MOUNTAIN

This trip has to be planned in advance before you come and we do recommend to make this trip as a part of the Tour package – see the options bellow.  

This location is 5 hours far from Accra so it is good to plan this trip as your next destination after leaving Lemon Beach.

The path leading to this splendid waterfall through green and lush semi-deciduous forest starts from the Visitor Information Centre(VIC). It is a narrow path that could allow passage for only two people walking side by side. The path is shaded by the tall trees of the forest making it almost impossible for the sun’s rays to reach the ground. Before we reach the fall site we have to cross nine wooden foot bridges that have been built over the nine meanders of the AGUMATSA RIVER on which the fall is located. As one moves through the forest, he or she could see some tree species labelled with their scientific as well as their local or common names.
