You’re “Ghana” Love Takoradi

Once a sleepy fishing village, Takoradi has prospered since becoming Ghana’s first deepwater seaport in 1928. Along the shore in the south of the city, laid-back beach vibes abound, but explore deeper into the heart of Takoradi (called Taadi by locals), and you’ll uncover a hub of activity that embraces traditional African life and modern commerce.

Make for Market Circle in the city center. A large circle of shops and business form the outer edge of the market, with a maze-like collection of smaller shops and stalls inside. Listen for the “thwack” of vendors deftly wielding machetes to crack open fresh coconuts, and watch as teetering stacks of goods parade past on perched on heads of locals. The very core of the market is the best place to sample authentic Ghanaian street food, like jollof rice (similar to Spanish paella), fufu (a hands-on cassava and plantain porridge), and chichinga (kebab skewers of chicken, lamb, or something more exotic).

For a break from the city that’s close to port, settle into a little slice of paradise at Africa Beach Resort. You’ll experience famous Ghanaian hospitality, with exceptional views of the Atlantic and elevated dining options. They say people make a place, and Takoradi is living proof. Discover it for yourself on West African cruises with Azamara Club Cruises®.
