Visa to Togo
Everybody but Ecowas-members need a visa, but it is possible to buy at the airport – so no need to worry about that before you get here. One week visas are 10.000 CFA and are issued at most major border posts and airports.

You’ll find surf spots all along the coats, but the better places are where man made strucktures makes sand banks along the coast. Mapped spots include Lome-Rivage just east of Lomé and Anecho further to the east toward Benin.
