The utterly beautiful and laidback Busua is rapidly becoming a top tourist destination in Ghana, but is paying for it. Vendors are starting to wander down the beaches, expensive luxury resorts are sprouting up out of nowhere and the beach is getting more and more polluted by the day Still, the place definitely remains worth a visit if you are...

Hideout was so hidden I kept thinking the taxi driver was lost. We had hopped off the bus and waved down a cab. Forget the guys in the bus depot, they run the usual game of overcharging. After some negotiation we got a guy to take us there for $50 cedi which was a good price we found out. Getting... More

Spent a week recently at Hideout Lodge with my wife and we loved the relaxed seclusion of the beachfront oasis. George, the manager was such a gracious host who insured our stay exceeded our expectation. The beach is beautiful, accommodation delightful and the food was great, the beer was always cold! Thank you George for making our stay so memorable.... More

This Hostel is located in Butre, just the neighbouring village of the famous Busua Beach. Busua changed negatively in the last years. Butre is much nicer and relaxed. You still can do a daytrip to Busua. The Hideout Lodge is a perfect place to relax completely. I went there with 2 friends and stayed three nights. You could easily spend... More

Friends and I arrived here for one night over the December holidays after a tip from a friend - loved it so much that we changed our plans and stayed for three nights. We had a bungalow at the back of the property with two bedrooms (three beds) and a private bath - perfect for three adults traveling together. Good... More

First off, the name is well-deserved: the place was about as remote as can be along the coast: coming from Accra, it was about an hour past Takoradi and required a long drive down an oil palm plantation road, then a beach road. (Tip: flying to Takoradi and then arranging a taxi with the owners will save you several hours.)... More

This is the perfect place to chill out, 10km of quasi-virgen beach (only a little village of fishermen). This place is really marvellous. Plus the food and the drinks are excellent, the fresh lobster is delicious but I also recommend the banana-curry pizza. There is also Pina Colada served in real coconut!

Stayed at the Hideout after traveling Ghana two weeks on a work trip - mainly inland. So arriving at the Hideout, just by the sea, to feel the airy breeze, was just perfect. The surroundings are very nice. Not overcrowded, but nearby is small fishing villages, which you can easily walk to and just sit at the beach and chat... More

Love this place. It's name says it all. Once you arrive you won't want to leave. The beach is beautiful and nearby villages of Butre and Busua are worth a wander too. Apart from that, get yourself a coconut cocktail, have a banana pizza and swing in your hammock to the sound of the waves.
