We were rather taken aback by Aqua Safari. It faces out to the estuary of the River Volta, a mile or so upstream from the ocean. From an open-sided restaurant and bar you can watch island-dwelling locals crab-fishing and clam-diving in the water. The forward-thinking owners offer guided tours to the islands for boat-building and basket-weaving workshops – there’s also a lot of water to play around in on a jet-ski or from one of the pontoons. Game-fishing excursions can be arranged too. Best of all is the option to spend a lazy couple of hours exploring one of the most beautiful areas of Ghana by boat. The whole river environment has a relaxed and gentle pace of life; a stark contrast to Accra two hours away.
The rooms are well-appointed, and the large chalets all have sizeable common areas and kitchens. There’s also a small pool if you don’t fancy a dip in the river, as well as a large new conference centre with all the modern amenities you’d need.
