accraexpat.com Day at the Beach - Spring 2017
Since Spring 2012, accraexpat.com organises one bi-annual event out of town : its Day at the Beach.
Twice a year, expatriates and children gather on the beautiful grounds of Sankofa Beach House for an enjoyable day on the sea. See pictures on our Facebook page.
Let's have anoher great day at the beach as we do each Spring and Fall ever since.
Located in the well-known beach village of Krokobite, Sankofa Beach House is a small and stylish resort owned and run by Masao, one of our American Members. Masao loves the beach and loves to cook! Discover the resort here .
Join us for a day of relaxation, swimming, walking on the beach, eating, playing and socializing with fellow expatriates from around the world. Kids are very welcome.
As we mentioned, the owner Masao loves to cook.
A rolling buffet service style again will be served again (the menu will satisfy both vegetarians and carnivores). The special accraexpat.com buffet lunch was GHS 60 for adults and GHS 25 for children above the age of 5 for all prepaid reservations. Guests are welcome to pay at the gate on the day of the event: GHS 70 for adults and GHS 35 for children above the age of 5.
For planning purposes, we kindly request that guests book and pay for their lunch reservation in advance at our Osu office (next to Frankies). Please call 0543 565 159 or email email@example.com.
