Getting Around Accra

Taxis are plentiful in Accra, especially within the city centre. Shared taxis follow fixed routes, and fares will depend on the distance travelled. Negotiate and settle on a price before entering the taxi. Metered taxis are also available; however, the fares may be slightly more expensive than those for shared taxis. Both types of taxis can be recognised by their yellow side panels. Tro tros are minibuses used by most of the citizens to get around Accra. They follow a set of fixed routes, and stop at bus stops and other designated stops. There will be a driver’s mate at the side of the bus shouting out the vehicle’s destination.

Main Attractions

Accra is an unlikely holiday destination for many, but those who find themselves in Ghana’s capital will be rewarded with a wealth of interesting sights. Start off with a visit to the National Museum, a storehouse of Ghanian history and culture. Those strolling along the sea front may be greeted by the sight of Osu Castle. Originally built by the Danish in the 17th century, the castle has had a tumultuous history, having changed hands and undergone several cosmetic changes along the way. Labadi Beach is also known as Pleasure Beach – its shore is often crowded with tourists and families enjoying the sea breeze while being entertained by buskers. Jamestown is Accra’s historic centre, filled with charming old houses and winding alleys. Its main sight is the gleaming lighthouse, a testament to Accra’s past as a fishing port.

Shopping, Dining and Nightlife

The Koala Shopping Centre offers a modern shopping experience, in a gleaming, air-conditioned shopping mall full of international brands. Visit the Centre for National Culture - more popularly known as the Arts Centre - to discover traditional handicrafts and artwork. The bazaar in the centre stocks vibrantly coloured textiles, and handcrafted souvenirs. Makola Market is a busy shopping district stocking just about everything, from traditional textiles and clothes to fresh fruit and vegetables. Osu has a large variety of restaurants and cafes offering local and international food. Asanka Local is a typical ‘chop bar’ offering up no-fuss Ghanian meals. After dinner, head to Frankie’s for ice cream, or the roof-top bar Monsoon to enjoy a drink while gazing out over Accra.
