Fodor's Expert Review Accra Beach
This popular beach, adjacent to the Accra Beach Hotel, has a broad swath of white sand with gentle surf and a lifeguard, plenty of nearby restaurants for refreshments, a playground, and beach stalls for renting chairs and equipment for snorkeling and other water sports. The Barbados Boardwalk, great for walking or running, begins here and follows the waterfront west—past private homes, restaurants, and bars—for about a mile (1.6 km) to Needham's Point. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking (no fee); water sports. Best for: snorkeling; swimming; walking.
