Prefectures of Maritime

Maritime is the southernmost of Togo's five regions, with the country's only shoreline on the Bight of Benin. Lomé serves as both the regional and national capital. It is the smallest region in terms of area, but it has the largest population.

Other major cities in the Maritime region include Tsévié and Aného.

Maritime is divided into the prefectures of Avé, Golfe, Lacs, Lomé, Vo, Yoto, and Zio.

Maritime is located south of Plateaux Region. In the west, it borders the Volta Region of Ghana, and in the east it borders two departments of Benin: Kouffo farther north, and Mono farther south.
