On a stretch of golden sand in Ghana, with 36 coconut trees and a lot of wildlife twenty one years ago Big Milly’s was born. Now there are twenty rooms, one hundred and fifty trees, a large menagerie of pets, over thirty different bird species, many butterflies and a colony of friendly bats in the coconut trees who start up a lively chirruping at dusk and eliminate most of the mosquitoes.
The garden gate opens onto a long, sandy beach with a rocky promotory to one end, suitable for scrambling over or fishing from. The beach is clean and safe for swimming or surfing, or for just rela under a shady thatched umbrella.
Kokrobite is a small, lively fishing village about 25 km west of Accra and one hours drive from Kotoka International Airport. A trip to Accra for visas or shopping takes about 45 minutes.
The village has recently acquired a tarmac road but it stops 1/2 km short of the garden, so we are not disturbed by traffic. Kokrobite village is a clutter of thatched clay huts where cooking and sleeping take place outside. The fishermen work from large dugout canoes which are manually hauled up the beach accompanied by singing. A plentiful supply of fresh fish is always available in our restaurant.
Kokrobite KidsGhanaians are extraordinarily friendly people with a great joy for living. You are never far from someone singing or dancing. It’s not unusual in the village to find groups of pre-school children producing amazing rhythms on a set of saucepans and lids. Music is everywhere!
The sun shines for 10-11 months every year and the temperature is 23-33C depending on the season; March and April are hotter months while June to September are the rainy season and cooler. In Kokrobite, a whole rainy day is very unusual as a heavy downpour normally lasts a short time and is always followed by sunshine.
We look forward to welcoming you
