Visa & Health
Before coming to Ghana every visitor must receive a Visa and the yellow fever vaccination. Travellers from abroad are also advised to take a malaria prophylactic. More info.
We do have a basic first aid kit and can offer basic care for minor wounds or illness. If in the event of a serious medical emergency the closest clinic is only 10 minutes away, the closest hospital is 1 hour away and we have the contact details of a very good doctor for immediate advice. If you have specific medical concerns we advise you may want to bring your own first aid kit.
As a reminder here is a short checklist of things we recommend you bring;
- Essentials: Flashlight + extra batteries, mosquito repellent, sunglasses, sunscreen
- Clothing: t-shirts, shorts, long sleeve shirt, long trousers, hat, bathing suit, beach towel, small backpack, sandals, shoes
- For Pure Enjoyment: surf board, camera, binoculars, ipod/ mp3 player (we can even hook it up to our bar stereo system!), snorkeling gear.
