“Turtles and snorkelling beach”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Great for snorkelling with turtles. Free to visit! No need to spend a fortune on boat trip. You can get a bus here and hop straight in the ocean. There were turtles everywhere. We went in with our 2 year old and she got to see the turtles too as it's a nice lagoon and easy to walk into.

“Nice with variable quality as sand comes and goes”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

This is a quieter beach with mostly smaller condos and/or private beach houses. There are no amenities so bring a cooler. Some bar/resturants etc are arround the south end rocks but you will get wet getting there.

Waves are generally small although some days it can get rougher and windier. It is never as calm as the west coast. Parking is limited but local help can point out places at a few points along this stretch of beach. Easily accessible by bus or maxi-taxi or a 5-10 minute walk from Accra.

Over the years I have seen 4 to 5 FEET difference in the vertical height of the beach (some say even more) from one visit to the next. Rocks are always present in a few locations but can be exposed in many more when things are bad. It is all dependant on the weather/tides. Nice with a good sand cover but not so when less sand is present. Turtles nest on the beach and should be left alone. Occasionally whales can be seen some distance offshore.

“Swimming with turtles!”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

This beach is just lovely. We stayed at the Maraval Guesthouse, around the bend from the Carib Beach Bar, right on the part of the beach referred to as "Sandy Beach." The water is calm and clear, and every morning before 9AM it's not rare to have 10-15 turtles feeding there. Instead of paying a lot of money for a tourist boat to swim with the turtles, just grab your goggles and swim with them here! The bathrooms are clean, and there are outdoor showers as well.
