The Boabeng-Fiema Monkey Sanctuary

Home to more than 700 monkeys, this sanctuary is a locally-owned and eco-friendly business that gives back to the community with every ticket bought. Not only will you enjoy fun trip into the wacky world of primates, but you'll be helping the local villages, too.

Once a thriving sea port, Ada Foah has suffered significant erosion and weather damage since the Dutch first started trading there in the 16th century. It still has beautiful beaches and picture-perfect colonial homes, but the sights won't last much longer, so go and enjoy them while you can.
