Overview

West Africa’s ‘Golden Child’ is a serious let down. It’s voted #2 on Lonely Planet’s least favourite cities for a reason. Similar to the Gambia, people will regularly try to get into your pockets. The nightlife is the biggest disappointment, considering the population of nearly 4 million – even on a Saturday it’s underwhelming. But apart from the ugly sprawl, the hustlers and the nightlife, it has one saving grace – Labadi beach, one of the coolest hang outs in all of West Africa.

The Girls

If you haven’t already, I’d strongly recommend  you read my article Sex in Africa 101 before continuing.

Yvonne Nelson, actress.

Ghana girls are fine. They’re a solid 3: Average, with the odd hottie. It’s hard to find cute faces but not hard to find good bodies. The good thing is they speak English. Foreigners are common place, so don’t expect girls to approach you as often as they do in other West African countries. You will have to do a little ground work, but with any effort you should find it easy to pick up. They are mostly Christian so many drink and are quick to go to bed. If you meet your girl at night take usual precautions. If she’s Liberian watch your ass. Take my nightlife advice to find middle class girls without hidden agendas.

The best place, by far, to find high quality women is a Labadi beach during the day. Every day here is a massive beach party and the atmosphere is infectious. Cute waitresses and sexy chicks in skimpy bikinis abound.

A city with nearly four million English speakers is ideal for pipelining. Girls with online profiles in Africa tend to be more educated and a little better off as well.

Nightlife Recommendations

Nightlife isn’t great to be honest. While we checked out several venues, I really couldn’t put many under the title ‘recommendations’. Avoid Macumba. Wakiki club is cool, but only on Monday nights. The Osu district is a popular night life area.

PS- Check out Tony’s tips in the comment section for nightlife!

The Office Block

Everyone one knows the Office bar (mentioned in LP), but the key thing here is that there’s actually three venues all beside each other in this block. It’s attracts the best looking women, the middle classes and also horny expat chicks. This seems like the place to be.

Aphrodisiac

Located in Osu, this is Accra’s most exclusive nightclub. A little pricey but it’s got a classy clientele and worth checking out on the weekend.

Getting High

Where to buy marijuana: In all likelihood you will be visiting Kokrobite beach for a few days. This is by far the best place to score weed. Now, there has been reports of people getting caught by undercover police here. Be vigilant as penalties are extremely harsh. Expect hefty bribes or prison time even for a small amount. Only get weed off a bonafide Rasta; there are plenty around.

Prague Marijuana Prices: 10 cedis (€5) will get you a massive handful of compressed bushweed, about two weeks worth.

My Accra Experience

We were here 3 days. Man do I have a funny story from my first night in Accra, but you will have to wait for that one… It’s a story similar to the Blowjob Bandits of Hanoi, but this time I came out on top (well, kinda). All in all we found the nightlife kinda crappy. We only discovered Labadi beach the last day, it was  awesome.

    Just got back from Cambodia. Way better than Thailand. But Siem Rep was way more fun than Phnom Penh. UNICEF, Red Cross, and every other chick out to save the world seemed to be taking a break there to let loose at the time. Better buds too. Let me know if you need advice on where to earn a Kuwaiti, Bahraini, or Saudi Flag. Lived over here for a couple of years now. Hard flag, but possible, and usually very worth the risk(her father can legally kill you in some cases) Kuwaiti chicks are hot and usually prefer us Hicks and you Micks to they’re own.

    You have to, if you haven’t already, visit Cape Verde.

    • gj February 3, 2014 at 1:44 pm #

      I was just in Cape Verde (early Feb 2014). Nothing great.

      Not much night life. Saw 5-10 hookers on the street. None of them were good looking. Saw a couple of girls who looked OK and one stunner. Not very many people around at all. Most of the tourists were old and fat. Most of the good looking tourist girls were with the local black guys.

    Awesome guide, now im curious about visiting Labadi Beach…
    Have you ever been to Angola? id honestly love to see a guide of that.

    Nomad 3 nights is not enough to check out Accra. For the record Aphrodiciac is about 20 minutes from Osu in an area called Jo Lu. Up until 2 or 3 years ago Macumba was a 10 year legend that really rocked. Jokers in Osu on Labadi Rd is good most nights but closed Monday. Bywel for live music in Osu is a place I’ve scored at many times.

    Look here’s the real deal on Accra and why it can be very good—-foriegners not the white male kind from Europe and America—the black female kind from all over West Africa as well as the Ghanian girls. I’ve scored at least 10 different flags in Accra alone. They come here cause it’s peaceful and crime free—-tons of Nigerians and Liberians.

    And for the record it’s those beautiful hot Nigrians that you might have a big money problem with in the morning—not so much the Liberians. Having said that

      Thanks for the info man. It’s the only city in West Africa I didn’t really feel I got under the skin off..

    You can definitely score weed at the far end of Labadi Beach with the rastas as well as in Osu next to Macumba at California bar.

    liking these WA reports … accra is cool, or at least was a few years ago; some sweet ladies, lotsa cheap rocks to sharpen the urge; but ye, music not up to much in the clubs and my fond memories are of a core upcountry girl who knew how to get on the trucks and travel …

    I work as an escort in Accra and have lived here almost all my life. All i can say is if you really want to enjoy Accra,u went about it wrong. Find a professional escort who will show you around the hot spots and who will at the end of the day cater to your most sensual needs and fantasies….thats the only way to go. I cater to business travellers and diplomats and usually, they thoroughly enjoy and appreciate the entire experience. The cost is nothing compared to the experience gentlemen, seek and ye shall find!

    • Cereal Killer October 16, 2014 at 2:33 pm #

      baby…if you are “professional escort” so probably you look good..but in my opinion everything pretious between a man and a women start when money barrier are broken. Weird for Africa no? how you can talk about “appreciation” if without wallet that man don’t deserve any attention? Are u capable to think in this way or you will say to me “it’s all about the money in this world boy”? you just miss the essence..hope to be fully satisfied with that green papers for what you run….but i really have doutbs about that.

    • amruth August 26, 2015 at 10:42 am #

      I will be traveling to Ghana. Hope to meet you. Show me around.

  13. Peter King February 4, 2013 at 10:46 am #

    Most of your itineraries seem remarkably similar to those of the overland holiday companies. Could our self-styled bold adventurer be no more than a tourist on what amounts to a cut-price escorted coach trip?

  14. Lustius February 24, 2013 at 9:10 am #

    Hello guys.. brothers in lust. I Live in Ghana for the last few months. Indeed one may say that night life not great but approcah isnt difficult. Ghanaian girls are friendly. But the approcah must be elegantly done. A new placewhere you can find some pretty faces and smashing bodies that are openminded If not professionals and reasonable if professionals is the Bar at Movenpick Hotel. Almost every day there are a couple of ladies during the happy hours but Fridays and Saturdays if i may say it is the heavyweight of all sins 🙂

    Ghanian update –
    Being a resident here and having been here for a few years now I’ll give a list of some good scences and places to visit…

    Labadi beach – great at weekends and as above says god quality
    Aphrodisiac – Thursday nights only as ladies free night,,
    Jokers (osu) – good at weekends but all pro’s so be ready to pay for what you get
    Republic bar – a street bar in osu ever growing and great for Expat mingling
    233- jazz bar on ring road between circle and osu) great bar for live music and high clss girls but approach is tricky
    Rhapsody – Accra mall) good bar at weekedns after 11, high class girls looking for white guys.
    Honeysuclke – British pub feel with the odd pro looking for white skin $$$
    Firefly – osu, lebanese driven bar but high class talent on display – difficult approach
    Duplex – osu – dancing nihgtclub but good girls that can pay to get in but pros mainly.
    Accra Mall – go there weekends and eat/ chat/ flirt
    labadi beach-wednesday night Reggae night… Weed and girls and rastas
    Vienna city – Circle.. pros and whites mixing it up.. lots of nigerians and liberinas…

    If your coming as a tourist you’ll never need anything outside this list –

    start at republic – duplex – firfly and rhapsody
    Vienna city and jokers for more hook up joints…
    ACCRA MALL FOR THE NO PRO PRO’S….

      I am here from last 2 months on new job, can you suggest me some good place to find white babes or expats girls other than Ghanian, Nigerian.

  16. ClitHunter July 18, 2013 at 9:12 am #

    @ADJELEY do u mind leaving ur contact, or probably a way to contact these escorts?

  17. Lustius August 2, 2013 at 3:35 pm #

    I am lieving in Accra as well. Indeed that was a great synopsis by Tony. I would go for Rapsody on Friidays. Great Ladies, Classy and open. I would also recomend Monsoon at OSU. The Bar gets classy local lady visitors openminded as well. Just after 10 PM. Occasionally Sandoku the new Japanese restaurant at villagio attracts tripple A ladies but some turn to be penny killers so be carefull. Enjoy your stay.

  18. Accragun November 27, 2013 at 4:55 pm #

    At jokers there are only pros. They are good tough. I havent seen there any 5 or 6 ranked girls. all of them are between 7 till 10. I have paid one of them 100 CD (50 usd) and we have gone to her place (10 usd)..It was a quick shot hostel for 2 hours. She was stunning, tall, extremely warm, and good shaped. We had a blast and really enjoyed her. But dont take them to your place or dont give them your mobile. ı had given my number to her and all week long she abused me by bazillion quantity of calls.

    • shooter August 31, 2014 at 11:39 pm #

      hahaa . she definatly will blast with calls. . May be You hit it right at the g-spot.

      • Silver Darling September 6, 2014 at 6:25 pm #

    Hiya Mark,
    If you’re going back to Ghana, I recommend going out of Accra (although the One Republik is cool, also has concert nights). 2 hours West (with good traffic 😉 ) are Cape Coast and Elmina, the beaches are crazy and muuuuch cheaper (the castles are also cool). Stumble Inn is an awesome address. Further North, Kumasi also comes much recommend.
    P.S you’ll never go hungry in Ghana, food is delicious and portions are basically American. And when in doubt: fried plantains.
    PPS: negotiate every taxi, especially in Accra, they even rip off Ghanaians 🙂
