Accra – Finding the Best Beaches and Affordable Accommodation
Welcome to Ghana and the beautiful city of Accra!
The coastal city of Accra houses much interesting and charming scenery peculiar only to the sub-region. The rich soil in Accra leaves it evergreen all year-round. Various flowers, trees and grasses in the city are proof of the potency of the land.
Among all the characteristics of Accra, the hospitality of the people is its trademark. It is very common to meet gorgeous and well-meaning people all over Accra. Expect to be offered a large bowl of fufu and palm nut soup or plate of banku and sauce with grilled tilapia. The people are always ready to freely lend a helping hand, be it with your luggage or with directions.
In Accra, you will get from this one-stop location, varieties that you will not dream of in a combination of many other destinations in the world. Among the varieties, the beaches and resorts are paramount.
Your vacation to the West African nation is not a vacation without a visit to a beach in Accra. I discuss a few beaches and nearby accommodation in Accra.
LABADI BEACH & PRESTIGE SUITES
In Accra, Labadi is synonymous with beaches. Labadi Beach is popular on even the lips of a day-old toddler. Labadi Beach is an everyday beach. You can count people running into hundreds even on the least busy days.
Prestige Suites is a quaint accommodation hub for all the tourist activities the Labadi Beach is known for. Prestige Suites is more like an extension of the scenery from the beach with spacious suites and spa and gym to please guests.
KORLE GONNO BEACH & OCEANIC RESORT
If one claims to be from Korle Gonno, the verification of that is his or her ability to swim. Water and the fellow from Korle Gonno go hand in hand. They are quite inseparable in most cases. This has left the Korle Gonno Beach constantly a beehive of activities. It is therefore very common to see a tourist in the area. On the weekend and holidays, it is always partying time at Korle Gonno beach.
After all the fun at the beach, all road leads to Oceanic Resort. An Oceanic Resort room comes fully furnished with a balcony and free internet access. At each balcony, guests are presented with a bird’s eye view of the picturesque Labadi Beach, while you relax.
KOKROBITE BEACH & LLOYDS BEACH RESORT
Ever since some revellers unveiled its magical prowess, Kokrobite beach has been Accra’s best open ‘free’ beach. And when the Lloyds Beach Resort was completed close to Kokrobite Beach, it has been game on for holiday freaks and party people in the area. Lloyds Beach Resort is a home away from home, comfortable and very relaxing.
Get a bit of all the fun this holiday season with a trip to either of the beaches for a fun-packed experience with family. Do not be surprised to meet friends, colleagues, clients, fellow church members and maybe your boss even there. For one, an Accra beach is the only place where old and young, rich and not so rich, male and female and employed and unemployed mingle stress-free.
