Axim is home to sub-Saharan Africa’s second oldest fort, and its main attractions are its beaches, its rich history and culture, and the architectural diversity of its buildings.
Axim is the largest town on the coast west of Takoradi, located almost halfway between Elubo and Takoradi. Distinguishable by a rocky beach, this settlement of approximately ten thousand people is situated in a tranquil and sheltered natural bay.
Axim is most probably one of the locations on the west coast where one can enjoy nature without giving up convenience.
Axim, like Dixcove, was formed from two settlements known as ‘Upper Town’ and ‘Lower Town’.
