Bobowasi Island is a small island in the Atlantic Ocean’s Axim Bay and listed the first place in the top 3 most beautiful islands in Ghana. It is located 1.8 kilometers north of Axim Castle, east of Egwang Rock, and south of Mensell Hedwig Rock, and is north of Watts Rock, east of Egwang Rock, and south of Mensell Hedwig Rock. The term ‘Bebo Arezi’ comes from the Ghanaian Nzema language, which literally means ‘they have beaten Arezi.’ Over time, the name ‘Bebo Arezi’ has evolved into ‘Bobo Arezi,’ which is today known as Bobowasi Island.
According to legend, the Bobowasi Island was once covered in a dense forest. Because of the presence of dwarfs, people were not permitted to visit the island. However, visitors nowadays can come and admire the beauty of the island as well as the lighthouse which is considered as part of the Western Region of Ghana, 238 km west of the capital, Accra.

Seva is one of the islands that make up the Keta Lagoon archipelago. It is around 2.7 square miles in size. Because it is a stopover spot for many migratory birds, this island is important for bird viewing.

Seva’s residents are known for their musical and dance abilities. They are proficient at xatsevu (African rattle music) and halo song singing (songs of abuse).
The main clients traveled from Nigeria to the Keta and Agbozume marketplaces in the Volta Region, Ghana. Seva is one of the recognized destinations for the weaving industry among the Ewe people, which were frequented by Yoruba and Hausa traders. Fishing is another major occupation. In the Keta Lagoon, crabs, shrimp, and tilapia are caught. In the Keta area, this is a crucial area for salt production.
