Spent a very pleasant few hours on the boat tour around the lagoon, walking on the beach and having lunch at the pier restaurant. All organised by Tsarley Korpey Beach Resort, a terrific experience, well worth the 2 hour’s drive from Accra. Make sure you leave Accra early otherwise you will get bogged down in traffic!
Ensure young children are properly fitted with life jackets before you leave shore as it can get choppy! Not too many places you can swim/paddle in fresh water then walk 100m across a sandy beach and swim/paddle in salt water.
WARNING: Schistosomiasis - caused by parasitic trematode flatworm Schistosoma; fresh water snails – For peace of mind DON’T paddle in the fresh water lagoon, the chances are very small, but maybe not worth taking the risk!
A number of Jet Ski hire places are dotted around the beaches at reasonable rates, but quite
how you get hold of someone to hire them seemed a challenge.
The spits of sand at the mouth of the estuary are breeding grounds for the highly protected Leatherback, Olive Ridley and Green turtles. Thankfully, the local community takes it very seriously. Night tours to see nesting turtles are available but unsure where to get on one, I have heard that they are a bit hit and miss as to whether you will see anything.
