Do you know I can swim in an ocean for days?

Ahahaha! Don't give me that weird look, I was only kidding.

Elegushi beach is located around Lekki axis, Lagos, Nigeria. Stop at Chisco bus stop and from there it's a trekkable distance or you probably take a bike. I visited the Elegushi beach on a Tuesday but was told it was always populated during weekends and very lively. So if you go during weekends, your experience might be different from mine. There are two entrance majorly to the Elegushi beach but I advice you go through gate two to avoid an eye saw, I hope you know what I mean.

You will have to pay a gate fee of N1,000 and parking fee of N200 if you are with a car.
For me I didn't pay anything to enter, you can call it "awuf". I went with a friend who was very conversant with the Elegushi beach and the gatemen so relationship paid up our entrance fee.

A must for you
You shouldn't miss the view of the Elegushi beach from the point of the rocks stacked together. The horizon from this point looked more than a million dollars. The splash of water from the current that hit the rocks is so refreshing. The rhythm from the current sounds like a lullaby. The air from the Elegushi beach is so clean and pure. You need to have this beach experience, words won't be enough to express the feeling.

Don't miss this
The feel of the salty Elegushi beach water on your feet  and the sand at the shore. It's so cool and comforting. I walked in it  for a while, though at the shore area.

An opportunity
Luckily for me, I found an abandoned boat at the far shore of the Elegushi beach. I never knew a boat was that heavy with the way it appeared so light on water.

Things to take along to Elegushi beach 

  • A sun shade would be very important.
  • Dress in comfortable wears. 
  • A mat might also be useful if you have plans to relax. 

Things you could do at Elegushi beach 
  • Go on a horse ride. 
  • Play games. 
  • Relax and enjoy the cool breeze from the beach. 
  • Hold a picnic or a get together. 
  • Eat and drink.
  • Take pictures if you are a freak like me. 

Was it worth it? 
My Elegushi beach experience was actually worth it and I don't mind having this experience again. Now I look forward to a boat ride.

In conclusion
This Elegushi beach experience has left me to my imagination of how much God loves humanity to have given us the gift of nature. It's a treasure to be explored.
Now I understand why Louie Schwartzberg said "nature's beauty is a gift that cultivates appreciation and gratitude".

P. S
Have you visited the Elegushi beach or any other beach? I will be more than excited to get your feedback.

What am saying
Have a great weekend loves.

Thanks for reading ☺ and hope you enjoyed it.
