What to Do in Accra, Ghana

Teeming with frenetic energy, Ghana’s coastal capital is a honeypot for a new breed of clued-up creatives, entrepreneurs and surfers. In partnership with Corona, our #ThisIsLiving guide to Accra takes you from barefoot beach hotels to secret street-food havens, plus for a stroll in a botanical garden smack-bang in the middle of the city.

In partnership with


Gomoa Fetteh

A near-empty stretch of coastline in Ghana’s Central Region, this under-the-radar pocket of paradise is only a two-hour drive from Accra. Aside from Tills Beach Resort, a popular spot for families and backpackers, and White Sands Resort, an exclusive members-only beach club and spa, Gomoa Fetteh has remained blissfully untouched by gentrification. Escape here for a quiet slice of beach life and a respite from the hustle and bustle of Accra.


Palm Moments

In between stints chasing waves at Ghana's blemish-free beaches – Busua is our go-to, closely followed by Kokrobite – hang out at Palm Moments. Barefoot surfers and energetic creatives swap stories over freshly pressed juices, iced coffees and wholesome buddha bowls. Come for the organic Ghanian food, stay for the vibes.


F604/1 Lokko Road


Freedom Skatepark

The first sustainable recreational centre in Ghana. Built in collaboration with creative powerhouses such as Daily Paper and Off-White, together Sandy and Surf Ghana have designed a unique sport infrastructure to celebrate the skate culture in Accra. The project is working hand-in-hand with the skateboarders, architects, the diaspora and the wider community. A must-visit for surfers, skaters and hypebeasts alike.
