Langma Beach

Langma Beach

Roswitha Stüber

There are a lot of popular Ghana beaches in this little country in West Africa. Ghana faces the Atlantic Ocean and is blessed with beautiful beaches. The beaches in Ghana are mostly public beaches and are great for water sports such as jet skiing, surfing and kite surfing. Here some of the beaches in Ghana that beach combers should definitely visit.

Labadi Pleasure Beach

This public beach is located in Labadi, Ghana, and has a three-km beach front that offers wide variety of water sports activities. The beach is blessed with strong winds and moderate to big waves, simply perfect for surfers.  The wide expanse of this sandy beach is right for frisbee and beach volleyball. Changing-room facilities, restaurants, snack bars and shower rooms dot the shore. 

Kokrobite

This is a 30-km expanse of beach from western Accra. Although this is a public beach, fewer tourists go here since it is a bit far from the capital. However, people who visit this place are greeted by a scenic view of the hills and crystal blue waters. Few facilities like changing rooms and restaurants are found here but then there are only few visitors here, so the few facilities are adequate enough to provide the tourists’ needs.

Ada Beach

One hundred km farther from Accra is Ada Beach. This beach is located in the coastal town near Lome Road and is a perfect haven for skiing, fishing and other water sports. The beach also has a marina near it, perfect for yachting. The coastal village near the beach also has restaurants and inns where tourists can eat and spend the night at a reasonable price.

Chocoloco Beach

A breeding ground for sea turtles, Chocoloco Beach is located east from Accra where the Volta River purges the Atlantic Ocean.  This beach is also a sanctuary for estuarine birds. This beach is a perfect destination not only for beach combers but also for nature lovers, as well. It is a great place for camping. Accommodations such as rental bungalows and inns are located at a nearby village.

Alaska Beach

This beach is very popular among beach combers and backpackers. The beach is secluded, unlike the other beaches in Ghana. Although secluded, the beach is complete with camping facilities, bungalows for rent, showers, toilets and water sports facilities. Moreover, this beach has several restaurants where tourists can sample fresh seafood and other local cuisine.

======================================================

LANGMA, KOKROBITE

The cleanest and most beautiful beaches of Ghana are the ones in Langma. Take a tro-tro from Kokrobite to Barbara's Village. 

Just around the corner from Barbara's Village, you'll find turtle nesting. Don't disturb the turtles, observe them in their natural habitat.

You can get a refreshing coconut or a drink on the beach too, although this is the most secluded and crowd-free beach in Ghana. Splendid waves make you wanna body-surf. You can get the boards at the Village.

Evenings are romantic mixture of food, waves, moon and dinner on the beach

In the Western Region, not far from Busua you'll find Butre beach. It's surtainly one of the most prestine and unspoiled beaches in Ghana. It's possible to borrow bodyboards from the guesthouse Ellis Hideout which is the only guesthouse there.  However is does make a change from other beaches in the area in that there is no hassle and the beaches are clean meaning that you dont have to watch your step as you might in Busua or Dixcove

It has a nice beach with many guesthouses to suit all budgets. Many tourists come here and this has led to a certain level of hassle but in general the vast majority of people here are exceptionally friendly and this is a great place to come and relax on the beach for a few days and sample some delicious seafood in some of the local restaurants.

Labadi Beach

A quite nice, but very very crowded beach in Accra.

Because this is one of few beaches in Accra which is actually kept clean, and which has lots of possibilities for eating, drinking and resting, you have to pay an entrance fee. The beach is connected to the back of dome luxury hotels from which the guests mostly get a free entrance on the beach.

Some days there are performances : reggae, hiplife, playback, but also cultural drumming & dancing...

Update 02-09-07: Labadi beach has deteriorated immensely over the past 2 years. The water is now more..

Misty Beach

A small, but very quiet beach on the road from Accra to Tema.

In the morning you can see the fishermen go out with their colourful boats, later in the day it's  nice place to swim or just enjoy one of the few moments without a crowd around you.
