A beautiful coastal ride from Avepozo direction Aneho∗, along the left side of the road. There are signposts which direct you to either the Auberge du Lac or the Hotel Le Lac, which is surrounded by huge mango trees at its entrance and has a swimming pool, a couple of crocodiles and a monkey.
Enjoy light refreshments and the quiet peaceful atmosphere while watching the Pirogues crossing the Lagoon.
Pirogues passing the Lagoon
You can board one of the Pirogues conveying passengers to Togoville across the lagoon where in 1884, the Togolese and the Germans signed the Protection agreement. This place is of great historical significance.
Since the old Chief died, it has hardly been worth it to visit Togoville. The Chief was known for his white hair, top hat and his ability to narrate the history during the colonial time. It was nice, listening to him. Now, the youths who wait for tourists at the other end are only interested in making money.
∗Aneho was the capital during the colonial era. Some of the most famous Voodoo and Mermaid festivals in West Africa take place in Aneho.
