WEEK END IS STARTING AT LAST 😉 !!!
It is time to rest out of Accra!!
Enjoy Bojo Beach !
At 40 minute drive from Accra, just past krokobite beach and you get to is this little piece of paradise to escape at last from the crowded and noisy Accra.
Here is the nearest beach from Accra : BOJO BEACH !
Entry fee is Ghc 15 but be aware that you are not allowed to take your own food or drink.
You will walk on a stone trail to a large canoe-type boat which will takes you across the lagoon to the white sand of Bojo beach.
Then it is time to rest and enjoy the sea with a wind …If you want , you can ask a table 10 meters from the sea, without nobody in front of you ! Just amazing 🙂
You can order food such as tilapia, chicken, jollof, yam chips, but also french fries, octopus, etc. Smoothie, Pizzas are also available. Prices are correst (around 35 GHC the chicken /french fries meal and 2 GHC the bottle of water).You should try to order as soon as you arrived so that you will get your meal for lunch -and not for dinner- 😉
You can also have fresh coconuts for 2 GHC to quench your thirst after swimming or having a walk along the beach.
The sea is quite clean, the beach all around the restaurant also, but all garbage are hidden in holes under the sand…… you can see in front of you the man “cleaning” by digging a hole and put all the litter inside….
The “attraction” here is to see the fishermen firing their nets in front of you. They are about 20 men doing this :
You can talk to them and they will love to explain their work.
Today, I met Francis a ghanaian from accra, who come every week-end to Bojo Beach to go fishing from 6 am to 11 am. During the week , he works as a security guard in Accra Mall.
They sell their frying of fished on markets or to you if you want of course.
==>But what I saw is so so so small fishes ….
The waves tends to be strong and you have to swim well and dive under each wave coming to you … it can be quite difficult to stay along inside because of it. The sea is hot and you feel good inside!
Some people also play in the volley ball court but it is so hot that I did not even tried once!
Be awared also that music start from 2 pm from the restaurant : so if you feel like dancing, and love music, it is perfect !! But if you want to rest in a quiet place, it is no more possible. So you should choose to come early and leave early !
On the afternoon, you can have a walk and discover all the colored fishing boat in wood, and meet ghanaian tidying up and folding fishing nets, and also children collecting crabs to cook ! Since it can be far, I had the security guard following me.
At the end of the day, you can take advantage of the light turning down with the silver reflections of the sea…
Colored fishing boats along the coast are particularly wonderful at sunset.
Do not hesitate to go to Bojo Beach !
Leave me me comment if you have liked this article ! Thank you !!
