Ghana’s best beaches

Updated on December 10, 2012

Ghana's beaches are some of the most beautiful in the world. You can easily discover Ghana's beautiful landscape and experience Ghanaian culture by getting involved in volunteering projects. A few examples of volunteering projects and internships in Ghana (Africa) include building projects, human rights internships and helping with an HIV/ AIDS prevention programme. There are many dynamic projects offered in the capital city Accra - from this vibrant base you can explore some of the best beaches Ghana has to offer.

Kokrobite Beach

If you have spent two weeks campaigning hard and getting stuck in with a human rights project in Accra, make sure you take the time to relax and wind down on Kokrobite Beach. The sprawling beach is 30 km long and is flanked by a dramatic backdrop of hills. It has a serene, paradisiacal atmosphere with beautiful lush nature. If you are lucky you might spot turtles nesting while you sip from a refreshing coconut. Although it is a public beach it is not as touristy as some of the others and so it has remained one of the cleanest and most beautiful beaches in Ghana. The sunsets in the evenings are breathtakingly beautiful.

Cocoloco Beach

Cocoloco Beach is the perfect place to visit if you care about conserving the natural environment. After spending some time helping with a building and renovation project in a local school you can relax on this Edenic beach. It is a breeding ground for a variety of sea turtles and a sanctuary for an enormous number of birds. You can camp out on the sand and gaze up at the bright, starry sky while the waves softly crash in the background.

Fanta’s Folly

If you are coming to the end of your trip after spending some time on a voluntary project, then money is probably getting tight! Fanta’s Folly is a budget option with a personal feel. Fanta – the owner of the resort – is a lovely Nigerian woman who will cook you up some delicious meals. She makes exotic dishes with local fish. You will be treated to the catch of the day – it could be shrimps, lobsters or cassava fish. Fanta’s Folly is a quiet, pristine beach with clean and comfortable rooms to stay in.

Ada Beach

Ada Beach is the best option if you are a fan of adventurous water sports. Located in a coastal town near Lome Road, it is a great place for water-skiing, fishing and kayaking. It also has a tranquil marina nearby which is the perfect place for yachting. The town has plenty of vibrant restaurants and inns where you can spend the night at a reasonable price.

Travelling across Ghana is cheap and easy - you can hail a taxi, jump on a tro-tro or sail across the water on a lake boat. Make the most of this accessibility by exploring the country, getting stuck in with volunteering projects with companies like www.projects-abroad.co.uk and chatting to the friendly locals. After you have explored the vibrant cultural hub in the Accra you should spend some time relaxing on one of Ghana's best pristine beaches.
