“Beautiful, peaceful south coast beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Maxwell Beach was one of my favorite south coast beaches. The sand was powdery, white, and clean; the water a beautiful, clear turquoise/blue hue. The ocean was calm enough for wading and playing in the morning/afternoon but it did get a bit rougher as the sun set so if you enjoy riding the waves I would go later on in the day.

I really enjoyed how serene and peaceful Maxwell Beach was in comparison compared to crowded Dover and Accra Beach. There were no vendors and plenty of shade. It was the perfect spot to play in the water or relax on the beach with a good book. I would recommend this beach to anyone who wants to enjoy a beautiful south coast beach in a more relaxing, tranquil atmosphere.

“Beautiful beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Beautiful beach, not over crowded, a little bit of swell, enough to make the sea more interesting but perfectly safe.

“Beautiful ocean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Although the locals advised me the ocean is rougher in April, there were still plenty of days we could go in the water, ride the waves and have a great time. Besides, you can't not enjoy the sound of the waves as you fall asleep at night.
