    LA Beach

    A Sunday at Labadi Beach

    The most popular beach in Accra and suburbs.
    Always plenty people and a lot of music, either life either CD's.
    Plenty bars and restaurants, you can have seats and parasols
    On Thursday night, big parties on the beach.
    Plenty bands are coming during the week-end. You can also buy crafts.
    After 5:30, lots of people are coming to dance and it is almost impossible to just go out of the beach.
    You will see children selling peanuts, water, chocolates, etc. Women proposing manucure, rastas proposing craft and jewellery.
    Be careful, you cannot enter the see everywhere.
    There are good watchmen and few larcenies. Anyway, be careful to your mobile phone, two of mine disappear at the beach. They just took the mobile, not my Rolex that was in the same bag!
    A last word: unique in all African headcities, and moreover, the cleanest beaches you can see in West Africa are in Ghana.

    Locals are offering guests at the beach a horse ride. Remember to settle the price and the time before you ride away. In general the horses in Labadi beach look underfed and skinny.

    Good place to buy some crafts. My guide from the hotel was great in helping me negotiate a fair price. Wish I had someone like that everywhere that bargaining is done.
