Winneba Beach at Sunset

Neal Jackson

Friendly little town 45 minutes  west of Accra. Go there for some nice walks through town and on the beach. Very relaxing if you are stuck in Accra for a while.You will be happy to meet friendly people who are ready to help you do what ever you want to do. You may roam through the town to the beach, one of the best in the country. Winneba has a big stretch of beach that makes it comfortable for tourists to enjoy the environment.  It is one of the leading towns in the country and it is blessed with learned people that have contributed a lot to the welfare of Ghana.  Winneba was also the second to receive electricity in Ghana after Akosombo. 

There are so many festivals in Winneba.  At Christmas there are very colourful fancy dress groups that entertain people, and in the New Year there is the fancy dress competition to determine which groups come out as the best dancers - a delight to watch!  In May there is the most popular festival in Ghana called the Aboakyir (Deerhunt) Festival.  People from all walks of life troop down to the beautiful town of Winneba to witness this famous festival. Easter is more observed and celebrated in Winneba than any town along the coast.  There is another festival called the Akomasi in the Effutu language celebrated in August.  There are so many occassions in Winneba that make it such a happy place to live in. 

Winneba also boasts of a university which is a combination of three best institution in West Africa.  Infact Winneba is termed the oxford of Ghana.
