History

Keta is a town situated at the Volta Region. Keta is the sixty-third most populous settlement in Ghana, in terms of population, with a population of 22,739 people.
Keta was an important trading post between the 14th and late 20th century via a port and fort built by the Dutch in 1784. Parts of the town were devastated by sea erosion between the 1960s and 1980s.

 

Now, as a low lying coastal plain with the highest point only 53 metres above sea level interspersed with lagoons, creeks and mangrove forests, the Keta Municipality offers a great potential for tourism development in the country.
