Princess Town sometimes referred to as Prince’s Town is also known as “Pokesu” and can be located in the Ahanta West District in the Western Region of Ghana. You will find it interesting to know that the town got its name because Fort Gross Friedrichsburg built in the town was named to honour a Prince.
Visit the town to learn about the interesting history surrounding the only fort in Ghana with Germanic associations, built by the Brandenburgers and is now serving as a rest house.
Enjoy the town’s beautiful, clean, largely undisturbed and very relaxing beach by sun bathing on the shores or undertaking other activities like swimming and surfing. Taking a cultural tour around the town will expose you to the community life of the inhabitants, thus, the Ahanta’s and the Nzema’s and you might be lucky to witness the celebration of traditional ceremonies such as baby naming, funerals, puberty rites and the Kundum Festival if you happen to be visiting around September and October.
You can also go on a canoe fishing ride on the Ehunu Lagoon which is separated from the ocean by a narrow sand and lies east to the town.
Trousers with cutoffs and sneakers will be ideal when embarking on a trip to Princess Town. There are some guest houses available if you would want to spend the night in the town and also there are a
number of local food joints where you can stop to eat.
