Located on the cliffs above the Gulf of Guinea in southern Ghana, the city of Accra is the state capital and has a population of almost 2.3 million. Founded by the Portuguese in 1482, the city changed hands many times from the Dutch in the early 1600s, to the Danish in the 1700s, and to the British in 1874. Tourism is important to the Accra residents and businesses, so they offer plenty of tourist attractions to enjoy.
Beaches along the Gulf of Guinea make the city even more popular with such warm weather all year long. Summers can have highs in the 80s with lows in the 70s. Winters are even warmer with highs in the 90s. In fact, 80 is the average daytime temperature all year long. Labadi Beach is the most popular beach in the state, with miles of sand and live bands, street foods, and bonfires. Vienna Beach is also a beautiful sandy place to enjoy the water, which is right nearby.
Some other great places to enjoy while you are in Accra include Memory Lane Art Park ad Aburi Botanical Gardens.
