Before I give you all the juicy details of all that went down during my short trip I would like to say that traveling to me is one of the most effective forms of therapy which can drain away sorrow and stress levels in a single breeze. A single trip out of the city you’re so used to, to quite a far away tranquil land without the everyday routine is definitely one thing we all need occasionally even if it’s just once a year.
If you follow me on (Instagram) and view my Instastories you’ll know I went to Lagos for a brief getaway and you bet I had an amazing time.
ABOUT THE BEACH
Elegushi Beach is a private beach located at Lekki, Lagos state, Southwest of Nigeria. The beach is owned by the Elegushi royal family in Lekki, Lagos state.
We went on a Friday afternoon, a group of 30, a coaster bus was hired to convey us to and fro the journey
GATE FEE & PARKING FEE
NGN 1,000 per person and NGN 1,000 for the parking slot with no time constraints.
I changed to my beach wear inside the bus, simply because we did not find anywhere to change. With little or no courage to wear a bikini, I wore this kimono which I have previously styled on the blog (here). I paired it with shorts which I think is the perfect length to show some skin.
It was my second time at Elegushi Private Beach and everything was pretty much the same except for the presence of touts (agbero’s) who were ready to extort us. At that point I found to what extent it has been since I was at the beach– I overlooked how terrified I was of the seething water. Yet in addition especially in wonder by how much life was coursing through the seas.
The Elegushi beach offers a tranquil environment for reminiscing and unwinding with people, the smell of the salty mighty Atlantic ocean, the loudness of the waves crashing onto the beach is a beautiful, marvelous sight to behold.
The mood was calm as the beach was not noisy with music, unlike my first visit.
Nature has ways of relaxing any sensitive human being. If you want to have some beautiful breeze, give this place a try.
The horse riders will keep bugging. Every second someone comes up to you and ask you if you want to ride a horse…no I don’t(lol)
The tide is very strong but its ok to walk in the water as long as you don’t go too far in.
Just like I advised (here) fun trips are best enjoyed with people. Even though I am looking forward to my first solo trip.
