The Tema Metropolis is a coastal district situated about 30 kilometers East of Accra, the Capital City of Ghana. It shares boundaries on the North-East with the Kpone Katamanso and Ningo-Prampram Districts, South- West by Ledzokuku Krowor Municipal, North-West by Adentan Municipal and the Ga East Municipal, and the South by the Gulf of Guinea. The Ashaiman Municipal is an in-lock enclave within the Tema Metropolis. The Metropolis covers an area of about 396km2 with Tema as its capital and lies within the coastal savannah zone. The Greenwich Meridian (i.e. Longitude 0º) passes through the Metropolis, which meets the equator or latitude 0° in the Ghanaian waters of the Gulf of Guinea. The Metropolis proximity to the sea with its low lying terrain which projects into the sea makes it a natural endowment for a harbour. This evidently informed the decision of the construction of the Tema Harbour in 1957, making the Metropolis “the Eastern Gateway of Ghana”.
