The first time we came here was during the week and the beach was empty. Our okada was stopped and we were asked to pay the entrance fee of 1000 naira. The quards jumped from their hut in such agressive way that my nigerian friend decided it was better to leave. Since the beach was empty, we left asap which... More

This is not your quiet beach adventure. The beach front is crowded with a rag-tag mass of traders selling everything from groceries, cosmetics, fashion items to food and drinks. There are several open-air discotheques competing with each other for the loudest and raunchiest music ever. If you're visiting with children, you'll want to leave before nightfall and even so, sensor... More

I have visited this beach on a few occasion's and like it very much. Although it is nothing special by western standards I think it has a lot to offer if it's fresh sea air, sand and nice barbeque's that you want. There are horses to ride and food and drinks to purchase on site which helps to make your... More

My idea of a nice beach is: sun, water, farniente, lounge bars Elegushi is so far away of that: garbages on the sand, loud music, beach boys everywhere, hot and expensive beverages, broken plastic chairs,... my God! The worst beach in Lagos! The paradox is that this place could be easily a small paradise corner! Horrible, fuyez cette plage payante... More

Went to this beach twice within the last 6 months. Less crowded than the other regular beaches in Lagos-Lekki area as probably it is lesser known. The Atlantic is a Beauty in the Sunset. The area has an entry fee of 500 NGN per Adult. But the Beach is better than the other beaches in Lekki. Enjoyed a lot both... More

If you are a tout, enjoy smoking marijuana and taking prostitutes home then you will love it. The first time i went my friends and i was summoned with 'body guards', the second time i made the mistake of not having one, although nothing happened to me. I doubt there will be a 3rd time.

if you want to know what the down-town social-life looks like in Lagos, then Elegushi Beach is the place to be. Every night, fun-seekers flock the beach to take beer and grilled fish under the moonlight with the light breeze blowing from the beach. While I'd warn that you be careful with touts and pickpockets, I'd assure you that Elegushi... More

We have been to Elegushi beach several times with friends and also with my children. The road signs are confusing so just look out for a smaller sign at the turning of the road where the school is. There are about 3 signs, the smaller one i think is the middle one so once you see the first big sign,... More
