The beach was dirty. Debris all over the place. Considering that this is not a public beach and you pay good money to rent a station/shelter, it should be better maintained.

Before you continue reading this, note that I was here just some days after the boxing day, so you expect thousands of lagosians rushing down here? Yes! You need to pay 1,000 Naira per person to get in, and I was with my partner - so we paid 2,000. Was it worth it? I think no, the beach should be... More

I still do not understand why this location retains the caption of a 'beach'!! Frankly, it is more of a sandy park than a beach.

The beach was OK but beware of broken glass when walking down to the waters edge. The waves can be VERY strong and children should be accompanied at all times.

Easy to locate from the round about Entrance fee per head circa $6= Naira 1000 A large number of touts at entrance can be intimidating Better to go as a group. The beach front was not rowdy, nice beach line Some merchant hawk their goods You have to pay for everything

nice beach, cool air felt good since it was so hot, the speed boat was a little frightening but exhilarating at the same time. Beach was not crowded and the shade provided was welcomed merchants trying to sell their wares was a little pesky but not annoyingly so

the whole stuff is more about money and less about fun, cos everything needs money (exorbitant) and the touts around only seek was to collect money from you, the only way to enjoy the beach is to go as a big group and carry a lot of money!
