Sometimes you get caught in an elevator, you accidentally bump into someone, you pick the wrong suitcase or catch someone watching you with a dreamy glance. Circumstances might play tricks sometimes; however, the right place can also spark the fireworks and passion between two people. Do you love spending time in quiet places with your other half? Do you love long walks on the beach with the sand filling in between your toes, or staring at a mesmerising sunset? Without further ado, Romeos and Juliets let’s explore romantic things to do and places to visit in Ghana.

Ghana has an abundance of places worth visiting, we all know that by now. Here are a few places perfect for those long walks with your other half.

Labadi Pleasure Beach
Labadi Beach and its exquisite Labadi Beach Hotel . It is one of the many places in Accra we added to this list because of the beautiful shoreline with sparsely spread coconut trees. It is the place for a romantic sunset. You and your significant other can enjoy lovely jazz music here or enjoy horse riding on the beach.

Things to do for ‘Adventure Souls’
If you two are both more of, as we call them, ‘Adventure Souls’, here are a few options to choose for you. Go for a hike to Shai Hills or Wli Waterfalls –mildly active day on top of a hill or at one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Ghana, might be the right choice.
Now here is a note to ‘adrenaline junkies’ we know Paragliding Festival in Ghana usually happens in April. However, Nkawkaw town (“red red”) in Eastern Region of South Ghana is one of the major towns in Kwahu Mountains. You will find this town on paraglider maps, we are sure, and with a reason.
