Besides Kakum national forest the visit to Cape Coast and the castle was the highlight of our trip to Ghana. The castle is well kept and the guided tour is definitely a plus, at the same time you can't help but to think that it could be done even better, there is almost nothing on display. The location is beautiful with the fishermen and their boats on the beach just by the castle. The entrance fee is steep for Ghana (but cheap by U.K. standards), in terms of the camera fee, we were first told it would cost 30 cedis but when we declined and started putting away the camera the fee was halved so some negotiations might be useful. Some of our friends were being hassled outside, first being asked for their names and later given a "gift" for which payment was demanded. The market stalls at the premises offers little in terms of value or uniqueness.
