While they're not a dime a dozen, Accra has some great facilities for the little ones in your life - from kids' pools and restaurants to an excellent minigolf course. Provision for children in the capital is improving all the time, but it's worth planning ahead to avoid tantrums. If it's not too hot, there are some great outdoor venues for kids in Accra - if it is, air-conditioned play areas are a blessing. Spoil them rotten with Time Out's pick of things for kids to do in the capital.
The best places in Accra for kids
Ci Gusta, an international franchise bringing a wide array of gelato, frozen yogurt, waffles and many other desserts. This cafe, located conviniently in Airport, provides a perfect place to relax during rush our. Have a late meeting or catch up with friends over a scoop of incredible almond gellato or try their lava cake. Not one for sweet, their savory menu is pretty tasty too! If you're looking for somewhere to take the children, Ci Gusta hosts many afternoon events specifically for them. A must visit in Accra!
La Palm Royal Beach is one the best pool complexes in Ghana, an ideal way to spend a lazy Sunday. Plus there's La Palm Kids Theme Park, a pleasant and safe enclosed park right by the pool. All pool facilities are open to non-residents; be sure to make use of them!
