Keta is full of very good and reasonably priced accommodation. The opportunities for exploration are excellent, aided by the presence of guest houses or hotels at several points along the coast.
Most of them offer plenty of activities to keep you entertained, such as: swimming and canoeing on the salt water lagoon, boat trips down the Volta River to the sea, dancing and drumming lessons, nocturnal turtle patrols, live music, reggae nights…
