dear coral listers,

is anyone aware of an aledgedly small coral reef outcrop off the western
part of the ghanaian coast around cape three points? its existence has
apparently been reported in a publication dating back to 1935 (of which i do
not have the details), and i have been told that coral detritus stemming
from hermatypic corals can be found on the beaches around a place called
"busua beach", just east of cape three points. coordinates would be in the
order of 4deg 30' N and 2deg W.

any feedback will be most appreciated.
