For $15 pp you got a lounge chair, a "free" drink, use of their facilities & a ride back to the ship. It wasn't the worst day at the beach but we had rainy weather so it wasn't the best either.
Understand what you are getting into if you go.

Two years ago we went to Boatyard and had a nice time.If Boatyard is 'too much'
Last year we went to Brighton Beach instead.
It's a long deserted beach that has bathroom and changing facilities,
chair rental and a restaurant. We enjoyed it.
This March we will go to Accra Beach.
I expect it to be somewhere in between, with more local flavor.
If Boatyard is 'too much'Accra Beach looks beautiful!! Is it pretty easy to get a taxi to get there? I've heard the taxi drivers by the pier sometimes aren't real thrilled to take you to places other than where they want to take you. Are there chair & umbrella rentals? Is it far from the port? Thanks so much and love those pictures!!! Janice
use the big long beach to get away from the crazy atmosphere
- or lack thereof!
Brighton is laid back,alright.. perhaps too quiet.
You'll like Accra. Us locals sure do!
and I don't think anyone (local or visitor) ever said he disliked Accra.
It's not a popular beach for nuthin!

We were with 3Dlinder at Lobster Alive and had a great time.I've bin tellin y'all about this Lobster Alive place for some time now
I just wish I would have tried the food! Their rum punch was pretty good.
I stayed in the water a lot that day. Clear blue water and white sand...nothing better.
Does Lobster Alive have water activities like the boat yard? esp. jet skiing?There are watersports guys cruising the coastline, up and down
