All relationships are unique and everyone enjoys spending time with each other in their own ways – but no matter what you enjoy doing, there’s bound to be somewhere in Accra just for you.

And, of course, we’ll be here to help make your plans go as smoothly as possible.

A romantic walk

Fresh sea air, the sun overhead and the sound of the ocean breaking on the shore – there’s nothing quite like a romantic walk on the beach. And, there are few better backdrops for a stroll than the gorgeous beaches in Accra. Labadi Beach is the perfect length for a walk, and you can dip in and out of the water – or a beachfront restaurant – when you want to. Alternatively, Tills Beach offers a more tranquil setting.

A surf lesson for couples

After a long walk and a light lunch on the beach, why not take a surf lesson together? And in Accra, there’s always a surf school nearby. Make sure you’ve got an appointment and when it’s time, request a ride to the school – or schedule one in advance to surprise your partner. This fun activity is sure to win you some points for a creative date!

Wining and dining

No Valentine’s Day is complete without a candle-lit dinner. Fortunately, spending Valentine’s Day in Accra means that there is no shortage of opportunities for a romantic evening meal. The Firefly allows you to take full advantage of Accra’s lively entertainment district – Osu. The modern European menu will not disappoint, with a range of delicious culinary options to try.

Watch the sunset

If you can get there before the sun sets, the Jamestown Lighthouse is one of the most picturesque places for couples to spend their evening. Climb to the top and admire the sunset against the skyline of the city. And, don’t forget to take that obligatory panoramic selfie!

And for the single among us…

Not found that special someone yet? Don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten you. This is often a time of year that single people try to forget exists, but it doesn’t have to be that way – Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to celebrate the other relationships in your life. Why not gather your friends, grab an uberX, and hit the town? Go shopping and eat in the Airport City district or dance the night away at some of Accra’s best clubs. And who knows, you might even meet your future Valentine’s Day partner along the way.

Whether you’re looking for the most romantic places or fun things to do with your closest friends, make sure to plan ahead to enjoy Valentine’s Day in Accra.
