Keta Lagoon

One of Keta’s biggest attractions is its lagoon and provides a source of food and livelihood for the local residents. Made up of fresh, shallow water this beautiful body of water happens to be the largest in the country at 40km long and 8km wide.

The water is generally safe for swimming but it is important to check with the local authorities first.

The lagoon also serves as one of the most important sites for marine birds in Ghana, and a genuine birdwatcher’s paradise, with 76 water-associated species, like little egret, western reef heron, fulvous and white-faced duck, black-winged stilt or avocet.
