Tema, Ghana
Locally named “Harbour Town” due to its status as Ghana’s largest seaport, Tema is located 16 miles (25 kilometers) east of the capital city, Accra. This small fishing village was elevated to be the leading seaport and industrial center of Ghana when the port opened in 1962. Tema is now a major center for trade, and is home to an oil refinery and many factories. It holds a long history of Atlantic fishing with a fishing harbor located at the eastern end of Tema’s commercial harbor, and encompassing the Inner Fishing Harbor, the Canoe Basin, and the Outer Fishing Harbor. Some attractions for visitors here are exploring the industrial harbor city, visiting beach resorts, taking a Canopy walk at Kakum National Park, and journeying up to the Wli Waterfalls near the Togo border.
