Fort Apollonia was built by the British between 1765 and 1771, to ward off Dutch colonial ambitions. The abolition of the slave trade in the Gold Coast diminished the importance of the fort, as a result it became too expensive, so the British abandoned it in 1819 after which, the Dutch took ownership over the fort in 1868.
Reminding of British colonial times, Fort Metal Cross stands tall on a headland near Infuma, a fishing village in Dixcove (Dick’s Cove, as it was initially named), in Ghana’s western region. The quiet waters of the bay are perfect for sailing (if you have a small boat) and canoeing. Large ships anchor about 2 kilometres offshore.
