There are so many Lagos beach that I am yet to explore. So, I am super excited about Laguna beach club. This beach is located at Okun-ajah Lagos. Okun-ajah community is the home of so many popular beaches in Lagos. They include Atican beach, White deck beach, Coney island beach resort, Barracuda beach etc. Some of these beaches are neighbors. So, if you stroll on the bank of Laguna beach, you most definitely will see some of this beaches.
How to get to Laguna beach Lagos
Laguna Beach is quite far for those of us visiting from the mainland. You can a bus from the Lagos terminal to Ajah bus stop. If you’re not using the Lagos bus terminal, you are missing out on the development in Lagos state. Click here to know how to use the Oshodi bus terminal to commute to the island on my Youtube channel. Don’t forget to subscribe for more travel vlogs in Nigeria. I personally use the terminal as a means of transport to the island. My reasons are comfort and affordability.
From Ajah bus stop, take a bus to Adesanya bus stop ( cost just 100 naira). Then you can take a bus to Okun-Ajah or a bike to Laguna Beach club. The entry fee per person is 1000 naira per person. It is totally free to access on weekdays. (Not confirmed yet though). I visited on a public holiday.
There are so many things that I love about Laguna beach. I would recommend this beach for anyone who wants to enjoy the Lagos private beaches on a budget. All their beach chairs, cabanas are free to use. So, your gate fee allows you access to all their facilities. I had a full cabana to myself. However, you can share with others that come to the beach. Cabanas are not cheap at all. The cost of Cabanas on popular beaches in Lagos like Oniru or Landmark beach costs about 30-60K. So, imagine how it feels to use one for free at Laguna beach.
Also, I love the aesthetic of the place. It is definitely top on my list of instagrammable places in Lagos. The artsy vibe of the outer part of Laguna beach is lovely. You can get food at Laguna beach. You can get food from their restaurant and drinks from their bar. I will also link below my vlog so you can see what I love about this private beach in Lagos.

Swim at the pool
Sometimes I wish I could swim. This is because Laguna beach has a pool you can use for free. The pool is close to the DJ. This is perfect for a pool party with your friends.
