Welcome to Busua
The small village of Busua, some 30km west of Takoradi, is a magnet for volunteers and backpackers, who love coming here to relax on the beach for a few days. There's a sociable vibe, with a number of chilled out bars and cafes in which to while away the hours; and the village has developed a reputation as a surfing hot spot. There are two excellent surf schools here, both offering lessons for absolute beginners.
The downside is the occasional rubbish on the beach, and the rather neglected air in low season.
