View Sushi in Accra: Posts and landmarks in a larger map
Two visits to Anomabo. First, a midweek one-nighter in May. The large site near-deserted. Off-peak buying all too evident at mealtimes: everything ‘finished’. But the facilities clean, the beach pleasant. The raised bar and restaurant area an unexpected charmer with wooden shutters, antique furniture and wicker lightshades. Conclusion: inconclusive.
Second, a two-nighter over the Founder’s Day weekend. The site packed with Ghanaians and expats alike. Everything on the menu good to go and the overall standard high. But a bit of a trade-off with service, which struggled during busy periods. A tuna sandwich failed to appear after 45 minutes, and took another 30 after we complained. As before, the facilities clean, the beach pleasant. Conclusion: a keeper.
The site is sandy throughout, with thick cover from coconut palms behind the beach. Accommodation is in modern, air-conditioned, en-suite huts (though without TV). They’re concrete, but clad with mud to preserve the ‘beach village’ illusion. Room fees include breakfast.
Findability: A cinch. Drive west out of Accra on the Cape Coast road. Keep going. It’s on the left shortly after you pass through Saltpond. Look for a sign composed of three horizontal white slats on black uprights. Takes under two hours from Accra if the traffic is good.
