We all see traveling or getaways as expensive but Ganyobi, a Travel Junkie, Filmmaker and a Photographer begs to differ. Here are some of the places you can spend a weekend with just GHS500 & below. And yup, they are worth every Penny.

Ezile Bay. 

Danielle (Twitter handle @BusuaInn_Ezile) manages the bay. It’s in the Western Region and 7hr drive from Accra in a town called Akwidaa. Quiet, peaceful and best if you go as a group. If you going via public transport, leave early.
Estimated budget for a weekend is GHS330 = 3 nights, 6 meals.
Save GHS110 a month on Pennysmart and go to Ezile Bay for Valentine.

Busua Inn in Busua. 

It’s one of the most clear beaches says Ganyobi :) and also managed by Danielle. Also 7hr drive in the Western Region. You can get a bicycle ride from Busua to Dixcove to see Fort Cross. Also Asa Baako is happening there next year in March 2019. Asa Baako is one of Ghana and Africa’s most established and inclusive music festival. Ghana's own Nyege Nyege.
Estimated budget for a weekend is GHS330 = 3 nights, 6 meals.
Save GHS110 a month on Pennysmart and go to Busua Inn during Easter.

Meet Me There.

Small but amazing place in the Dzita, Volta Region. 3hrs drive from Tema Roundabout. You can catch the sunrise and sunset here. It’s very difficult to get accommodation here so you need to book ahead.
Estimated budget for a weekend is GHS360 = 3 nights, 6 meals.
Save GHS120 a month on Pennysmart and go to Meet Me There with your friends.


Keta Lagoon Resort

This is a whole resort on the Keta lagoon. Is worth the experience and the town has almost everything you need. It’s a little out of town so you better get what you need before coming there. Fort Prinzenstein is not far off and a good site to visit.
Estimated budget for a weekend is GHS540 = 3 nights, 6 meals.
Save GHS180 monthly on Pennysmart and go to the resort with your work or college best friends.


Maranatha Beach Camp (MBC)

In Ada Foah you would find a whole camp of fun and amazing people. 3hr from Accra. Located right at an estuary is MBC with over 20 rooms with dorms as well. There’s boat rides along the lake, bonfire at night. Ask for Alfred, he is amazing.
Estimated budget for a weekend is GHS300 = 3 nights, 6 meals.
Save GHS100 a month on Pennysmart and go to MBC for peace outside Accra.
