Reasons to visit Lagos

beach and ocean lagos

Relax on Tarkwa Bay Beach

Take the ferry or hop on a speedboat to blissful Tarkwa Bay Beach just south of the city. This coastal retreat is the perfect place to wind down away from the city centre. Soak up the sun as you lounge on soft sands and swim in the inviting waters of the Lagos Lagoon.

Thrill-seekers can try their hand at surfing, while a 30-minute stroll along the seafront leads you to a lighthouse that’s over a century old. Be sure to bring some extra cash to rent beach umbrellas and chairs, and keep some spare for freshly caught fish served hot off the barbecue.

Brush up on Nigerian history

Lagos is a busy city full of hustle and bustle – but you’ll want to learn more about its development while you’re in the city.

The Nigerian National Museum is home to some of the country’s most notable pieces of art and archaeological findings, some dating back to the 9th century. A walk through its halls and exhibits is a perfect way to immerse yourself in the history and local art.

Look out for the Jemaa Head, the museum’s most famous artefact. This was created by the Nok culture, one of West Africa’s earliest civilisations. For extra information and background on some of the different pieces, there are tour guides on hand to answer any questions.

Immerse yourself in Lagos culture

Freedom Park stands on the site of a colonial-era prison and embodies the themes of independence, unity and peace. Broad Street Prison, which used to stand in the park but was pulled down in 1979, is now used as a creative space for locals to enjoy recreational activities and a moment’s contemplation.

Sit by the fountains and listen to live acts perform on the open-air stage. Wander the surrounding grounds and you’ll find many different statues and monuments.

There are plenty of food stalls around too, serving traditional Nigerian dishes that are full of local flavour.
