Busua is overall a bit different from many other places in Ghana. Busua seems to have “grown” into a kind of tourism on a local level. You will find a lot of improvised shops, foods, juice-stands etc. You see more nationalities here than typically around Ghana.
I have visited Busia many times and it’s never exactly the same.

Very nice beach, quite clean compared to other places. The only problem is to find a place to stay. Stay away from Busua Beach Resort! Very expensive for what you get.

This is the cleanest beach that I've seen in Ghana. It is very long, the waves are great for surfers. And the best part is that it's empty. You basically have a beach for yourself.

This place falls well into my taste.
But you should not expect a high standard. This i layed back and down to earth.

If Cape Coast beach is not remoted enough for you, go to Busua and enjoy Guinea gulf sandy coast. It is not very developed place that you can find less and less every year in the world.

Busua Beach is the beach very closely to Takoradi. The beach with the big waves, fresh sea food prepare on a grill and perfect natural.

Lovely spot, especially the Okary tree (I think that's the name!) for food. Decent and consistent surf, with many friendly locals. Favourite spot in Ghana!

In Busua you relax, eat good food, surf and meet people. It’s a quiet little town, perfect for relaxing, surf and reading. Recommended!

I went to Busua Beach from Cape Coast in August 2017 for a day trip. It took so long to go that I wouldnt recommend it for a day trip, but it is definitely the best beach I visited in Ghana: it was similar to Krokobite but much cleaner and almost no people. I would spend two nights. It was super peaceful and relaxing. But because it was rainny season (May-September) three hours later I arrived it started to rain a bit. There are some lodges and hotels but it seems pretty empty in general terms. There are a few surfers schools. The workers of hotels and restaurant (maybe 5-6 people) dont bother you so much as they do in Labadi or Krokobite. About logistics and how to go there from Cape Coast: I first took a trotro at 7am (local vans that work as buses) from the trotro station with destination to Takoradi for 10 cedis (2€). Then in Takoradi, at the gas station Ezi Goal Station (in front of the roundabout, by Agona-Takoradi rd) I took another trotro to Agona for 5cedis (1€). Finally at Agona town, at the little trotro/taxi station by the roundabout (make sure you tell the driver of the Agona trotro you are going to Busua or he will take you further in town instead of dropping you at this taxi station to go to Busua) you have to take a shared taxi (3 cedis per person) or normal taxi (10 cedis) to Busua. The taxi will drop you at Busua, 1min walk from the beach and the resorts. The whole trip took me 4h.

Busua's beach is one of the nicest in Ghana. It is good for swimming and surfing depending on the time of year and swell conditions. There are 3 surf schools and many good restaurants and hotels located right on the beach.

It is also worthwhile exploring the villages of Butre (3km hike to the east), and Dixcove (2km hike to the west).

Yoga at the beach is also available for 20 cedis a head, just ask for Rafat (phone 024 371 0490), or ask about it at Ahanta surf school located on the beach.

We happily spent 7 days relaxing in the sun here, before heading back to a northern hemisphere winter.

Expect to pay around 50-60 cedis for a taxi from Takoradi.
