Busua is a beach resort and fishing village in the Ahanta West District of the Western Region, about 30 kilometres west of the regional capital, Sekondi-Takoradi in the Gulf of Guinea.
Busua boasts a great variety of hotel accommodation. In terms of eating, Busua Beach simply spoils you for choice. Small seafood restaurants that serve fresh lobster barbecued over hot coals, tuna, barracuda, shrimps, and other seafood. You can even observe local fishermen bringing in the days catch before you eat.
Just a short 20 minute hike or swift locally rented bike ride leads you to Fort Metal Cross. Built by the British as a trading post in 1683 but not officially completed until the 1690’s. Fort Metal Cross was besieged twice in 1712 by John Kanu, a local ally of the Prussians, but on both occasions the fort was defended successfully.
Visiting the national parks of Nini-Suhien and Kakum National Park, both around 55 Miles away from Busua could not be easier. The parks are an ideal day out for anyone seeking a safari experience. The best time to visit Ghana’s national parks is early morning, when the sun has just started to rise. As the day progresses, any wildlife tends to become less visible, as it disappears into the shade. Whilst Ghana’s national parks may not have the reputation acquired by those found in Southern Africa, wildlife and safari lovers certainly won’t be disappointed by the rich variety of animal species that can be observed.
Busua’s long sandy beach is clean and safe for swimming and water sports. In fact, Busua is considered one of the safest places along the Atlantic coast for water sports.

Busua Beach has earned a reputation as being Ghana’s best beach. Busua Bay with the prominent Abokwa Island just offshore, offers visitors great surf, with a backdrop to match. A fast and quite hollow beach break and a right point break. Local and visiting surfers often walk to the west of the beach and after a lengthy paddle reach a good quality right hand reef break. There are many other surf spots within in the area that you can normally surf alone of with your friends.
