It won’t be an exaggeration if you say Lagos is LIVE. It presents so much adventure even from day to day activities. In this beautiful coastal city, there is so much leisure activity you can always engage in.
Beyond driving around, going to the beaches and clubbing, another spectacular way to enjoy your weekend or a vacation is to take a boat ride to different places; having a picturesque view of the city. Here are some of the favourite destinations you can take a boat ride and experience the coastal Lagos.
The island of Takwa Bay is situated along the shores of Lagos buffered by walls of rocks that makes the beach a pleasant place for swimming.
As Takwa Bay is only accessible by waterway, the boat ride down to the beach is a good avenue to sightsee Lagos from the coast. You can get a boat from Maroko, LekkiEpe Expressway Jetty and Falomo Bridge.
The island beach is a favourite spot for different water sports activities like jet skiing and surfing.
On the splendid bank of the Lagos Lagoon and the Atlantic Ocean is the Inagbe Island. The island hosts the Inagbe Grand Resort and Leisure, a top getaway and tourist destination. Visitors can board a boat at the Regatta Jetty in Ikoyi.
Enjoy your 25 minutes ride to the island, taking memorable pictures of the vanishing land, long stretch of ocean, other seafarers and the islands along the route.
Some of the places you can see from the boat ride are Tin Can and Snake Islands. Enjoy a perfect weekend getaway on the island by booking a room in theInagbe Grand Resort and Leisure.
Ilashe is an enchanting unspoiled island, along the Atlantic Ocean bordered by the Badagry Creek. It is accessible from jetties in Ikoyi, Victoria Island, Lekki and Apapa. Be sure to leave the island before 5pm so as not to encounter transportation issues.
