tourisim attractions

Tourism is gradually becoming a source of revenue for the Assembly through the gradual increase of hotel facilities in the district.  The district is endowed with a lot of basic natural tourist attractions such as the Weija lake embankment that could be developed into a holiday resort.  The viewing of the lake from the nearby hills provides an attractive and fascinating scene to the observer.  The Weija Lake-side resort could also provide an enabling environment for the development of African rural type chalets, water sports and boating on the lake.

The Kokrobite-Bortianor beach area that is partially developed with visitors facilities and temporary beach cabanas require further improvement. In addition, the entire Densu Delta Basin that is designated as a Ramsar site has been conserved and requires further development with minor visitors’ facilities, for viewing resident and migratory birds and marine life, within the urban environment. The Medie Garden, that is only 6km from the district capital of Amasaman, is also noted for its beautiful floral and fruit gardens and could be improved with small-scale tourists’ facilities.

The Assembly has had discussion with the Archaeology Department of the University of Ghana, on the possibility of establishing community museums since most of the potential
tourist sites are being rezoned for other purposes.

The District is dotted with several Cultural and Historical Attractions. These include:
  • Guaokoo Sacred Grove , Pokuase
  • Samsam Cave
  • Samsam Water Falls
  • Okaikwei Shrine at Ayawaso Village
  • Medie Flower and fruit Gardens
  • Osofoman Presbyterian Cemetery
  • Dagari Music Centre, Medie
  • Africa Heritage Archives (Kofi Ghanaba)
The major festival which is celebrated among the Ga People of the District is Homowo.  It is celebrated in the month of August each year. In addition to this are smaller festivals which are celebrated by the various clans, stools and houses.
