Grand-Popo is a town, arrondissement, and commune in the Mono Department of south-western Benin. The commune covers an area of 289 square kilometres and as of 2002 had a population of 40,335 people.
It grew around the slave trade, but coastal erosion has now destroyed most of the old town. The town is now a centre for voodoo and home to a Finnish – African cultural centre, Villa Karo. The town’s main industry is fishing.
The town inspired the name of the French electronic music duo Grand Popo Football Club.
