Komenda Cave

Komenda Cave is located on the ocean shore, west of Komenda town. The Cave dominates a series of natural erosional features worn into the sandstone along the shore by sea.

Accessibility is made easy by stairs leading to the beach from the Komenda College grounds.  The Cave is made up of a relatively narrow tunnel, open at both ends with a floor area of approximately 200sqm.

The passage is narrowed by rock debris and the low ceiling, limits the usage of the floor space. The mouth of the Cave opens to the west at the beach level and leads northeast, parallel to the shore.

The interior opening at the back (eastern end) of the cave is formed by the collapse of a portion of the Cave’s roof. The site provides some of the earliest evidence for human habitation in coastal Ghana according to archaeologists.
