Kokrobite is located 30 kms (19m) outside of Accra and has some of the nicest beaches and local peoples. The Academy of African Music (AMA) is located here. It offers a great restaurant and some great performances from some Royal drummers. You can take dance and drum lessons here too.

A little further on, about 5 minutes with a tro-tro, is Langma, still in the Kokrobite area.

Every evening you can watch the local fishermen getting their nets out of the water. There are also some turtles nesting.

There is also Big Milly's Backyard, run by a lovely English woman called Wendy. Big Milly's is a resort mostly designed for the rugged traveller but they have just added air conditioned rooms, so it now suits most tastes.  Big Milly's has a fine restaurant that serves lobster and other dishes. 

Other restaurants in town include the Kokrobite Garden Restaurant, run by an Italian named Frenco.  Frenco's serves wonderful Italian dishes, including a delicious thin crust pizza.  The up and coming restaurant in town is Ocean View Garden Restaurant, on the hill by the big church.  It is owned by the lovely Nkrumah sisters, Mary and Gloria, and offers excellent grilled fish and chips and pizza with bountiful cheese. 

The recently built Cool Breeze Hotel offers comfortable, Western-style accommodation for visitors, parties, conferences and events.  It is on the right coming from Accra just before entering Kokrobite village.  It is just five minutes' walk from the beach with a lovely seaview and cool breeze all the year round.
