Accommodation in Cape Coast

Oasis Beach Resort drumming in GhanaThe city has several accommodation Oasis Beach Bar in Ghanaoptions for visitors. You will find various hostels, guest houses, and hotels in the city as well as along the coastline.

Cape Coast does not have just one beach. There are beaches stretching from along the coast on either side of the city. The further you get away from the centre, the more quiet you can expect it to be. What we consider the main beach of Cape Coast, is the one lying just west of Cape Coast Castle. It is within walking distance from the centre of the city. On this beach you find Oasis Beach Resort, and a few other more low-key establishments.

If you want to stay at the beach, we recommend Oasis Beach Resort. Oasis is the place to be if you are looking to meet people. A good mix of Ghanaians and internationals come everyday to enjoy the beach vibe and the impressive sea view from the Oasis Beach Restaurant and Bar. Sleeping options range from dorm beds to comfy air-con rooms with TV’s available.
