Alaska offers traditional Ghanaian food on demand and the restaurant at the Busua Resort features a wide selection of seafood and other dishes.
Busua Beach is an amazing stretch of beautiful sand and sea. It is located in a semi-cove only 5Km from Dixcove – just a short walk through the forest. Just a little over 1Km off-shore is a small island that you can charter a small boat to get to. If you are adventurous, you can even swim there – just be sure to have a backup.
Cocoloco Beach is located at Ada Foah – about an hour east from Accra where the Volta River meets the Atlantic Ocean. The area is a natural paradise and a breeding ground for a variety of sea turtles. The Volta Estuary is also a sanctuary for an enormous number of birds. Cocoloco has camping and accommodation in a number of bungalows built in a traditional thatch style. To get there, head east from Accra and branch right at the Kasseh-Ada junction.
