  • Busua Beach

Busua Beach is located on several acres of natural sandy beaches about 45 km west of the port city of Takoradi in Ghana's Western Region, about a 5.5-hour drive from Accra.

Busua beach is a wonderful place to be, with its night cool breeze and accommodating atmosphere. The water here is serene and most inviting. The beach stretches for miles and isn't littered with trash or excess people, partly because of its more remote location. More of an effort, it is well worth the visit.
