Kokrobite is only 30km (19mi) west of Accra. By far the easiest way to get to Kokrobite is by grabbing a taxi from your location in Accra. If you want to save money (or go local), take a tro-tro from Kaneshie Station in Accra.

Bringing Surfing to Ghana
A guide to Kokrobite wouldn’t be complete, without a section on Brett Davies, the man who brought surfing to Ghana. Brett started his surf school in Busua in Ghana’s Western Region, but moved his operation to Kokrobite to be closer to the Accra crowds.
Not only has Brett introduced surfing to Ghana (and Ghana surfing to the world), he is organising beach clean-ups in Kokrobite and surf competitions around Ghana, mentoring young Ghanaians to become surf instructors, and supporting Ghanian communities with fund raising projects. You will find Mr. Bright’s Surf School inside the compound of Big Milly’s Backyard.
