Ada is next on the ‘Bel-Aqua Proudly Ghanaian’ Series.

Up until the early 2000s, Ada was just an average, fishing and trading community in the Dangme East District  located in the eastern part of the Greater Accra Region of Ghana.

Ada is a demonstration of the extent to which  investments in  tourism can transform the prospects of Ghana’s ecotourism sites, so much that it is one of the tourist attraction sites that draws an equal  balance of locals and foreigners for the same purposes- luxury, relaxation and fun.

Unlike many of the tourist attraction sites in Ghana, Ada is about an hour’s journey from Accra and provides equal opportunity for a one-off trip or a more prolonged vacation experience.

The reason  being, Ada boasts of some of the most expensive, luxurious and exciting resorts in Ghana, of which Aqua Safari and Marantha are the most popular.

Aqua safari presents 71 plush rooms and Chalets each of which are  equipped with sleek and modern bathrooms, Air Conditioning and luxurious amenities including Wi-Fi, Cable TV and a mini bar.

Marantha, however,  is quite basic and more practical for the masses. Its prices are relatively cheaper than that of Aqua Safari.

Another trademark of Ada is the diverse opportunities it presents for water sports activities because of the different options of water bodies available.

On one hand, patrons can take some thrilling jet ski rides on the Volta River as well as play volley ball or soccer on the banks.

On the other hand, there is the sea that presents its own opportunities.

More recently, investors have made available luxury yacht cruises that hosts parties, wedding receptions, amongst others offshore the Volta River.

In a nutshell, requisite investment in the past decade has propelled Ada into Ghana’s modern tourism hotbed with endless opportunities for world tourism in the coming years.
