Travel Tips for Accra

Aquarius

by Alpha_Ghana about Aquarius

AQUARIUS
used to be a German bar but the owners are presently Russians. Very nice place to go from 21:30 till 00:30.
4 billiards, Darts, cocktails and beers, very international, very expensive, European prices!

However, the place to go before going to night clubs.

Now, they added dancing floor and large screen TV. Cool
Beware of the numerous money girls who will ask you a drink. If they stay too long in the place without a drink, they are quicked out. When you pay the drink, they use to take it and leave you.

La Beach

by Pieter11

The most popular beach in Accra definitely is "La Beach". It is a nice sandy beach at a few kilometres east from the centre. It officially belongs to the Labadi Beach Resort, but it is also possible to enter it for a day visit.

At the beach it is not wise to swim in the ocean, because the currents are very strong in this part of the sea, but it is possible to refresh yourself in the shallow part. There are -not so clean- showers and dressing rooms that you can use, there is a lifeguard and there are nice chairs that you can use for free.

The restaurant on the beach can serve fresh fruit juices and great meals. I had a lobster with fried rice and I really enjoyed it.

One very annoying thing about La Beach however are the young salesmen that hang out there all day long and attack every white person they spot. Stories like "you are my friend", "I can show you the nice places of Ghana" and all that crap can be very annoying after the 10th attempt. At the end of every conversation they offer you all kinds of souvenirs and even drugs. So better don't start a conversation with them.

I LOVE ACCRA VERY MUCHAccra
As a savoury blending of big-city bustle and African ease, Ghana's seaside capital is second to none on the continent. At once sprawling and accessible, rambunctious yet friendly, it's a city run by native Ghanaians, and their pride in their product shows. Best of all, even as popular as Accra's become in recent years, you still won't trip over Westerners at every third step. The best introduction to the city is a good browse in one of its main hawking grounds. Right at the heart of central Accra, the Makola Market brims with glass bead and batik sellers, while Kaneshie Market on the western side of the city is the one to hit for mouthwatering foods and spices. James Town, on a short peninsula south-west of the centre, is a handsome if dilapidated neighbourhood that's also worth a wander.

A huge military parade ground backed by the sea and capable of holding 30,000 people, Independence Square is to Accra what Red Square is to Moscow, minus any building of note. The square is just east of central Accra; while you practice your goose-stepping, notice Osu Castle - Accra's most historic structure - in the distance. Disappointingly, it's now the seat of government and off-limits to visitors. The Arts Centre, between the city centre and Independence Square, is where artisans gather to sell their wares and entertainers come to take advantage of the crowds. Count on catching some type of dancing, singing, jamming or traditional theatre performance. The Arts Centre is also the best craft market in the country.
