It is critical that we take you through guides that will inform you of what to expect when visiting a beach in Accra.
- While some beaches in Accra are free, some actually charge a fee before you are allowed to enter. These charges could fall within the range of 5 cedis to 50 cedis, so don’t be surprised when you meet such a situation.
- Some of the beaches do not allow you to bring food from outside. Whatever you intend to eat must be purchased from within.
- Be cautious about your security. In fact, on some of the beaches, if you are not careful, you might end up having your important belongings like mobile phones, money, etc. stolen away from you. Don’t just put your personal belongings in a bag and leave it idle; if you have a car, put them in it and lock it.
