Tarkwa Bay, the Island Beach In Lagos, Nigeria

Tarkwa Bay, the Island Beach In Lagos, Nigeria
Written by See Africa Today

Imagine a holiday on an island tucked away near Nigeria’s capital, Lagos. Tarkwa Bay Beach is located near Lagos harbour but far from the hustle-bustle life of the Nigeria city. 

Tarkwa Bay Beach is the one zone in Lagos where adventure, peace and calmness reigns.  Its island status makes it a top tourist destination in Nigeria. 

In retrospect, Tarkwa Bay Beach is a paradise compared to other beaches in Nigeria which are often crowded with a lot of activities going on. Tarkwa Bay is quiet, and the best place for a family to spend those good moments.

The 15- 20 minutes journey to Tarkwa Bay is enjoyable and hassle-free. It starts with a ride on a speed boat that has an hourly schedule to the island. Marina, Jetty, Victoria Island and Mekwe are points where you can get a boat to shuttle you to Tarkwa Bay for between $4 and $5. 

Water sports enthusiasts have a time of their lives with countless activities such as water skiing, jet skiing, diving, swimming, snorkelling, you can play beach volleyball and ride horses. There are friendly local vendors selling food and souvenirs. Sunsets at the beach are a gorgeous sight as you wind down the day coupled with the cool evening breeze.
