There are so many places to relax, enjoy and cool off to reenergize yourself for work and other important activities. But in this list, we bring you five of the popular beaches and resorts in the country where, we believe, Green Views’ tenants would love to spend a holiday.
Of course, it doesn’t mean that aside these five, the others are substandard. There are other nice and relaxing resorts scattered around the country where you can equally enjoy yourself.
Yes, Labadi beach will always come top of the list. It is the most popular public beach in Ghana. Located in Accra and noted for its spacious and fascinating 3-kilometer beach front, it offers a wider space for visitors to engage in a lot of activities.
It is not the idle beach for those who want a calm and serene atmosphere to reflect on certain things in life. It is a beach for those who wish to party and enjoy loud music, and dance as well.
There is a volley ball court for those who love the game. Live guards are available to direct swimmers on safe and unsafe areas for swimming. Food, drinks, alcohol and barbecue joints are available there. There is also a change room, washroom, and shower areas, and other facilities which makes it user-friendly.
Security is also well-assured as on very busy days, such as holidays and weekends, the police are made available to ensure law and order. There are also horses available for those who want to experience horse rides or take photos while sitting on them.
Labadi beach offers a different kind of experience like no other in Ghana. All Green Views tenants are encouraged to experience the pleasure that there is at the most popular beach in Ghana.
