Axim Beach Resort – Paradise On The Western Coast

by Kojo Pocu
Hotels In Axim

Welcome to Ghana’s Western Region, which is home to many beautiful beaches, resorts and camping areas. It is possibly the ideal location in Ghana for lone visitors looking for a place to discover their unique selves. It is a historic location with hospitable locals. And one of my favourite destinations or resorts in the Western Region is the Axim Beach Resort, the little paradise on the western Coast.

With two restaurants, a pool, and a playground, this enormous resort is the biggest in the region but still manages to feel welcoming and small. Beautiful thatch huts in a deep crimson colour. Many of them have floor-to-ceiling windows so you can take in the breathtaking views, and they are dispersed over a lush green hillside that dips down to a charming beach.

About Axim Town

Axim is a seaside town and the administrative centre of the Nzema East Municipal District in South Ghana’s Western Region. In the Western Region, 64 kilometres to the west of Cape Three Points, is the port city of Sekondi-Takoradi. There were 27,719 settlers in Axim as of 2013.

The Nzema people lived in this region.

By the beginning of the 16th century, traders from Portugal had arrived. In 1515, they constructed Fort Santo Antonio, a significant seashore fort. Some Africans were exported as slaves to Europe and the Americas. The fort was enlarged and modified between 1642 and 1872 by the Dutch, who “controlled” during that time. The fort, which is now owned by Ghana, is accessible to the public. There are some beautiful islands offshore, including one with a lighthouse.

Nzulezu Stilt Village

A village that is unique to Ghana can be found near the coast in the country’s far west, close to the Cote d’Ivoire border. The beautiful beauty of the 400-year-old stilt-supported water settlement of Nzulezu, which is home to hundreds of residents in the Western Region, can be found on Lake Tadane.

The Nzema term “Nzulezu” means “surface of the water.” The earliest of the Western Sudanese States, the Ghana Empire, and its capital city Walata is considered to have been the source of the village’s residents’ migration. The village’s ancestors were supposedly transported to their current location by a snail, according to legend.

A dynamic interplay between man and nature can be seen in the tranquillity of the surrounding area and the everyday routines of life on stilts.

Fort Apollonia

The name Apollonia was given to the area by a Portuguese explorer who sighted the place on the Feast of Saint Apollonia, on 9 February. The Swedes established a trading post at Apollonia as part of the Swedish Gold Coast between 1655-1657. In 1691, a British trading post was erected at this site, which between 1768 and 1770 was extended into a fort. After the abolition of the slave trade, the fort was abandoned in 1819, but it was again occupied from 1836 onwards. The fort was transferred to the Dutch as part of a large trade of forts between Britain and the Netherlands in 1868, on which occasion it was renamed Fort Willem III, after King William III of the Netherlands. Four years later, however, on 6 April 1872, the fort was, along with the entire Dutch Gold Coast, again transferred to the United Kingdom, as per the Gold Coast treaty of 1871. The fort was restored between 1962 and 1968 and it is now a museum
