There is so much more to Accra, Ghana than what meets the eye. A haven for thrill-seekers located on the southern coast of the gulf of guinea, the city's activities often spill into the Atlantic ocean via its healthy surfing, fishing and boat tourism scenes.

The capital city serves as the undisputed epicentre of youth culture in Ghana, the location of its first skate park and the birthplace of the nation's premier streetwear brand Free The Youth. Art schools such as the Ghanatta College of Art and Design are producing highly skilled art practitioners in the city while exhibition spaces like Gallery 1957 are providing the infrastructure for them to flourish. Its nooks and crannies are riddled with new adventures for people from all walks of life.
