Greater Accra Region

Capital: Accra

Greater Accra Region is the smallest region in Ghana and is home to Accra, the capital city of Ghana. Accra, established 1877, has a population of over two million. In addition to Accra, the commercial centre and Tema seaport, three other rural districts contribute to sustaining the region. Accra was one of the earliest European settlements in West Africa; today it is a sprawling city with districts of tree-lined avenues and modern buildings. There are beautiful beaches, world-class hotels, international restaurants, museums and monuments. Shopping and nightlife are found along the high street. Kotoka international Airport is five km from Accra. Tema seaport is the country's foremost commercial port with the deepest harbour in West Africa.
