Prince’s Town and Cape Three Points

Prince’s town is the stunning focus of the Cape Three Points area, the most southern tip of the West African coast.

At Prince’s town you can visit and stay in Fort Groot Friedrichsburg (est. 1682), which has spectacular views of the most beautiful beaches on the entire Ghana coastline. You can swim and relax, or wander the fort and discover its history.

Prince’s town is about 60 kilometres from Takoradi and is well worth the effort to get there. Not only is Prince’s Town beautiful, but it can serve as gateway to the beautiful beaches, historical forts, two sacred crocodile ponds, fascinating fishing villages, and nature reserve in the surrounding area.
