As noted in the last post, Ghana is a wonderful destination for surfers. The beach at Busua has long been a destination for backpackers, surfers and holiday makers. Abokwae Island, with its two cocoanut trees, appears in countless photos taken from that beach.

The fishing village of Busua is nestled between two lagoons on the coast of Ghana. Those villagers who do not go to sea to fish tend their farms in the rolling hills that extend back from the ocean. The village is home to the Ahantehene, Nana Baidoo Bonso, the Paramount  Chief of the Ahanta people. Nana was a student in the Half Assini Secondary School when I taught there in the early 1970’s. This view is from the rooftop of the African Rainbow Resort in the village.
