Accra 8
Accra generally is a cool place to hangout. A lot of restaurants serving both continental and local dishes. Night life in Accra is also splendid with a lot of of outdoor pubs. It also has a lot of classy night clubs like the plush Citizen Kofi, Afrodisiac and Boomerang. Moving about in daytime is however quiet frustrating due to traffic jams especially during the rush hours. But moving at night is very fast. A lot of beaches and resorts too.

Accra 4
Depends what you want to do, sure they have beaches and restaurants but the city lacks in things to see and do during the day. I stayed in Accra for about three weeks then I moved to Dakar. It was day and night, not even comparable, just look on the Internet, the brochure for things to do and see in Accra is about two pages its triple that for Dakar.
