Welcome to Cape Coast

Cape Coast is the historical capital of Ghana, formerly known as the Gold Coast (a name derived from several European seafarers and imperialists when gold was in abundance in the region). Cape Coast is also the location of many castles that previously operated as depots and dungeons for the Transatlantic Slave Trade of previous centuries.

 

From a touristic perspective, Cape Coast is scenically eye-catching, with the vivid blue waters of the Gulf of Guinea splashing along the illustrious and expansive beaches of the city, in contrast with its brightly colored homes and fishing boats.
