Protected from the Atlantic by sand spits and barrier islands, Lagos quickly grew into a mega city due to its location, and currently operates one of the continent's largest and busiest ports.
Get out of town with these interesting Lagos side-trips: Lekki (LSP Paintball & The Henna Place). The adventure continues: look for all kinds of wild species at Lekki Conservation Centre, pause for some photo ops at The Eyo of Eko Statue, head outdoors with Elegushi Beach, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Lekki Market.

For ratings, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, read Lagos road trip site .

Los Angeles, USA to Lagos is an approximately 25-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 9 hours traveling from Los Angeles to Lagos. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Los Angeles in July since evenings lows in Lagos dip to 74°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Benin City.
