accraexpat.com Day at the Beach - Fall 2014
For the first time, in the spring of 2012, accraexpat.com organised an event out of town. We did it a second time in the fall and it became a bi-annual event. Expatriates and kids gather on the beautiful grounds of Sankofa Beach House for an enjoyable day on the sea. See pictures on our Facebook page.
Let's have anoher great day at the beach like we have each Spring and Fall ever since.
Located in the well-known beach village of Krokobite, Sankofa Beach House is a small and stylish resort owned and run by Masao, one of our American Members. Masao loves the beach and loves to cook! Discover the resort here

Krokobite is the closest beach resort to Accra. The drive on a Sunday morning is about 45mn. See detailed directions below.
We hope to see you there for another great outdoor day on the ocean in good company.
Last year, some carless guests enjoyed car-pooling. Should you have space in your car or should you wish to find a ride, please let us know at email@example.com so we can put you in touch.
Sankofa Beach House is located in Kokrobite on the outskirts of Accra (approximately 50 minutes drive from the center of town).
From Accra, the newly completed La Paz Road and Malam junction is the fastest way to get to the Beach House. From Malam Junction going towards Kasoa and Cape Coast, you will take a left at the “Old Weija Barrier.” You will know you are approaching “Old Weija Barrier when you see Modex filling station on your right and Sizzler/DSTV on your left. After these two landmarks, you will hit a set of traffic lights with signs to Bojo Beach and De Holiday Beach Hotel. Take a left at the traffic light and go up the hill.
Follow this beach road past the fishing villages of Aplaku, Bortianor, Oshi, Kokrobite. At the Kokrobite “last stop”/or transport stop, the road will fork. To the right, the road is unpaved. Bear left and stay on the paved road and follow the road until you reach De Holiday Beach Hotel. There you will start seeing signs for Sankofa Beach House. The road will turn into a dirt road and follow it through the village of Langma and take the first left, first right after the school on the right and football pitch on the left. Follow the sandy road and make a turn at the Sankofa Beach House sign.
If you have problems, ask on the roadside or call 0244-311-439 or 0244 616-081.
