. At Ankobra Beach Resort, my husband and I REALLY really relaxed and rested. The beach is beautiful with a short walk along it to Axim. Our bungalow was very comfortable and private with artful touches. We had just completed our first rather demanding week in Ghana, and the three nights we spent there felt like a honeymoon getaway with perfect r&r before our upcoming and final week of travel. The first day there, we just rested, read, ate, swam and walked into Axim. The second day, the resort helped us hire a driver to go the location to paddle out to Nzulezo - the stilt village, followed by a tour of Fort Apollonia with its small but very informative museum. We ate all our meals at Ankobra Resort and enjoyed the classic/ timeless feel of the place and the diverse menu. The staff was friendly and incredibly helpful with sorting out travel logistics. The manager/couple was also very friendly, while at the same time respecting our privacy. The staff, in fact, are participants in a development training program for residents of the nearby village. This is just one of the many local socially responsible projects initiated by the resort managers Ines and Klaus Aurnhammer. The food was great. The recorded music in restaurant was great, too. Coming from the US, I found the water there more powerful than I was used to, and my husband who likes to body surf did a bit of that but not enough. Our last afternoon at Ankobra, Ines pointed out a modest hike up a hill that provides chaises at the top and an impressive view of the meeting of the ocean and Ankobra River. We are recommending Ankobra to friends who live in Accra as a great getaway for them, too.
