Eleko beach Lagos is one of the cheapest private beaches in Lagos you need to explore. Although it is quite a journey to visit this beach yet is worth it. To make it worth your time, you can explore Omu resort Lagos which is a few kilometers away. In every one of my vacations, i prefer to go with a travel group in Nigeria so i went out with my Hang out buddy team to Eleko beach Lagos.
We were all anxious to know where this beach will be. it is because the location was undisclosed to us from the onset. The ride to Eleko beach is a long one and our first stopover was at Nevaro mall. The mall is very big and beautiful. It is like those places that make you want to take pictures for the gram.
We all got to know each other on our way to the beach. As networking is one of the aims of hanging out in a group. As they say, your network is your “Net worth”. The ride to the beach was fun all the way. We engaged in games while riding to keep up the buddy spirit.
On arrival at the beach, our host led us to a cottage for our hang out of the day. He also pleaded with us to stay clear of the beach waves/ water because of the ongoing dredging. This has made the beach quite deep and somewhat unsafe.

Eleko beach is actually free to access. The beach has lovely cottages for tourists looking to hang out in seclusion like Lil Zanzibar cottage. Lil Zanzibar cottage was our hang-out spot. It is a beautiful cottage with lounge chairs, a tree house, and a mini pool.
This cottage cost about 35,000 naira per ten persons. Asides from the lovely beach huts, you can shop for lovely beach wears. These wears are sold by northern men moving around with these items.
Games & Pool activity
Lil Zanzibar cottage is spacious so we were engaged in some game activities. The games include; brain teaser(…it was no game for people that have forgotten all about their school days. Quite challenging as well as insightful.), ayo games, etc. The games brought our competitive spirit and made the hangout lively.
Also, we had fun in the mini pool available at the cottage. Everyone took a dip in the water because it was a shallow pool. (Anyone who can’t swim will love this pool. I will literarily drown in a deep pool. Like a stone thrown to the bottom of the sea. But i felt confident in this pool). Asides from the games, you can
also, engage in horse riding at Eleko beach for a token fee.
