It is also known as Labadi, a popular town near Teshie in the Greater Accra Region. You will find coconut trees, beautiful views, and so many fun activities to engage in.
Street food and local gin
Labadi Beach is a one-stop location for street food and local acholic beverages and gin. Some local delicacies such as Jollof, grilled tilapia, kelewele, spicy kebabs, fried pork, local biscuits, and many others.
If you are like trying local alcoholic beverages, this might just be the perfect spot for you. Here you can try some locally brewed gin and spirits such as akpeteshie, local dry gins, and “shocker”. These are strong drinks and moderation is advised. Tobacco lovers will most likely appreciate hookah lounges and smoking areas too.

In Ghana, beaches are one place where the fun never dies. Famous musicians often perform at Labadi Beach or have special jam nights. Live music nights often go deep into the night or as the local people will say, “till Mama calls”.
