Whether for a holiday or business, booking a flight to Accra, Ghana’s capital city, is undoubtedly worth it. Accra is a city pulsating with life and only a few kilometres from the dazzling beaches bordering the Gulf of Guinea. You will relish sightseeing trips to explore the city after resting in the comfort of your excellent hotel accommodation. An absolute must is the art galleries and the lively and bright-coloured marketplace. Don’t stress about getting about as a private taxi or public 'tro-tro' minibus taxi will take you everywhere you would like to go.
Labadi is Accra’s most favourite beach, where you can watch surfers frolicking in the strong, crashing waves from a waterfront restaurant while sipping an ice-cold beer. Spot young people dancing to music, and young children putting on an entertaining show of acrobatics.
Perhaps you are looking for a more peaceful place to relax on your trip? Then head to Labadi Beach, also known as La Pleasure Beach, with its white sand, palm trees and warm waters of the Gulf of Guinea.
Catch a tro-tro from central Accra and enjoy the colourful and vibrant atmosphere of the Makola market. You will spot many stalls selling everything from souvenirs to beads and fabrics among all the energy. Women ablaze with impressive flamboyant headdresses will be there to greet you from inside their stalls. Experience the life of the city as you meet local Ghanaians going about their daily shopping.
Relax in the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park, with several acres of rolling landscaped gardens adorned with many flowers and calming water features. The Park is dedicated to the founding father and first president of Ghana, Kwame Nkrumah, and marks where he declared independence. A local museum speaks of the former president’s struggle for freedom supported by many photographs and personal items.
Be sure to journey to experience more of Accra's history with a trip to Jamestown's red-and-white lighthouse, from where you can appreciate a stunning view of the busy fishing harbour. In addition, the old architecture is worth a tour.
The Independence Arch in Accra forms a section of Independence Square, the second-largest city square in the world. Other monuments in the Square that point to Ghana’s struggle for independence are the Liberation Day Monument and the Black Star Gate. As always, there is much more to see and do in Accra that should be experienced.
