The blissful Tarkwa bay beach is located some kilometers offshore away from the ever busy Lagos Island. While cruising to the island on a boat, you will be treated to amazing views of popular spots in Lagos such as  the Radisson Blu hotel, the Lagos Yacht Club, the Lagos harbour and straight head on into the open ocean.

How to get to Tarkwa Bay:  Tarkwa bay Lagos is only accessible by boat and the ride will take about fifteen minutes.

Tarkwa bay has been existing since around the 1960s.

Things to do at Tarkwa Bay

With a splendid beach to boost of, Tarkwa bay resort is a perfect place to relax and have fun. Treat yourself and entourage to a fresh fish barbeque, all you have to do is to spot a fisherman returning from the Ocean, buy as many as you want, which will immediately be processed into a barbeque.

If you are fascinated by ships, a fun thing to do is to take a walk along the beach coast to view massive cargo ships and several other smaller ones passing by. Also there are some rusty wrecked ships which are very good for photography. About 30 minutes walk from the beach is the 110-year old Lagos harbour lighthouse located at a nearby beach called Lighthouse beach.

Round up your visit to Tarka bay with another boat trip back to Lagos Island and relish the view of Lagos and expansive ocean.


* Go with a waterproof beach bag.

* Go prepared with your swimming suit on because the beach lacks a changing room facility or toilet.

* You are better off going with your drinks even though these are sold on the beach.

* Make sure you establish the price of anything and everything beforehand. It’s custom to haggle, so know that they may try to overcharge you.

* Be prepared to rent beach chairs and covers, just try not to over pay.

* Don’t forget other items such as towels, balls, floating pads etc.

* Avoid sun burns and remember to go with a sunscreen.

* Pack light as you will need to keep your personal items close to avoid theft.

    Hello. My girlfriend and I plan to visit Takwa Bay for at least two days after her exams. Please is this a great idea for relaxation and romantic time together for us? Can we also swim? What other activities are there? Very importantly, how about accommodation for at least two nights? Please what rates can we get? We don’t even plan to take our food and drinks along? Are we making a right decision? Thank you.
