Things to do at Tarkwa Bay

With a splendid beach to boast 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 overpay.
