For children there are multiple activities available including ballet lessons, drumming, African dance, horse riding, tae kwondo. If you or your child wants to learn something then somebody somewhere will teach you.

You may like to spend your weekend at the pool of a local hotel. You pay to swim and the charge covers sun lounger and sometimes a towel. Alternatively there are a number of beach resorts within an hour or so of Accra. Take care in the water. Rip tides do occur. If you are not a confident swimmer, check if there is a lifeguard available or look for a competent local who is familiar/comfortable with the water and pay them to stand guard.
