Lou Moon Lodge

Top choice lodge in Axim

Perhaps the loveliest beach resort in the country, Lou Moon sits on a beautiful and private sheltered bay backed by thick forest. Rooms and chalets – all polished plaster, huge windows and crisp white linen – are an exercise in understated chic, and the daily changing menu offers a small choice of delicious dishes, including kids and veggie options (C45 to C95).

Unlike the majority of Ghana's beaches, the water here is clear, calm and perfect for swimming. And if you're fed up with eating and sunbathing there are tons of activities on offer, including kayaking, volleyball and paddle boarding. The resort is equally popular with visitors from over the border in Cote d'Ivoire.
