Where Labadi beach is crowded with tourists, expats, and the hawkers taking advantage of this, Dolphin beach and Cocoa beach are favorites of the locals and much less commercialized. They are located at Teshie Nungua a suburb of Accra to the east before reaching Tema. There are a couple big hotels in the area, and some smaller guest house beach hotels to stay in. The only downside to these beaches is their proximity to Accra means there is usually trash washed up on the beach; there are also strong currents so swimmers should be careful. There are eating spots and bars on this beach which are more affordable than Labadi beach.
