- Green Turtle LodgeFirst to ReviewJul 05, 2012
The scenic Green Turtle Lodge is possibly the most relaxing and beautiful, albeit slightly rustic, lodges in the already gorgeous Ghana. Although it is well off the beaten path and slightly difficult to make reservations, it is more than worth it.
Owned by a very openhearted couple, The Green Turtle Lodge is an 'Econo'-Lodge, meaning that they try to be as self-sustaining as possible and introduce travelers to the wondrous culture of Ghana. While this does mean that there is no electricity (they do keep a single power strip to charge cell phones!), there are more than enough activities that the owners would gladly arrange for you. Activities range from taking a guided canoe tour down a nearby river, to a cultural tour of the neighboring fishing village, or even watching their namesake, green turtles, nest on their shores because the lodge is also a marine sea turtle conservation. Of course, there is always the option to laze around in a hammock, soak up some rays or enjoy the huge clear beachfront where all sorts of sporting equipment is provided free of charge.
The best part of Green Turtle Lodge has to be their staff. They are the most accommodating and friendly people I had met in Ghana. They will gladly help you with anything you require and will always greet you with a smile and everyone will know your name no matter how short of a visit you take. The Green Turtle also has some of the best food in Ghana. The menu changes daily and they offer a wide range of cuisines including local options all at very reasonable prices. They also keep a well-stocked bar with a very generous happy hour.
I would highly recommend spending a weekend here but you will definitely want to stay much longer.
