I went to Busua Beach from Cape Coast in August 2017 for a day trip. It took so long to go that I wouldnt recommend it for a day trip, but it is definitely the best beach I visited in Ghana: it was similar to Krokobite but much cleaner and almost no people. I would spend two nights. It was super peaceful and relaxing. But because it was rainny season (May-September) three hours later I arrived it started to rain a bit. There are some lodges and hotels but it seems pretty empty in general terms. There are a few surfers schools. The workers of hotels and restaurant (maybe 5-6 people) dont bother you so much as they do in Labadi or Krokobite. About logistics and how to go there from Cape Coast: I first took a trotro at 7am (local vans that work as buses) from the trotro station with destination to Takoradi for 10 cedis (2€). Then in Takoradi, at the gas station Ezi Goal Station (in front of the roundabout, by Agona-Takoradi rd) I took another trotro to Agona for 5cedis (1€). Finally at Agona town, at the little trotro/taxi station by the roundabout (make sure you tell the driver of the Agona trotro you are going to Busua or he will take you further in town instead of dropping you at this taxi station to go to Busua) you have to take a shared taxi (3 cedis per person) or normal taxi (10 cedis) to Busua. The taxi will drop you at Busua, 1min walk from the beach and the resorts. The whole trip took me 4h.
