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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Red Door Art Gallery and Eleko Beach. Relax by the water at Elegushi Beach and Atican Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lagos: The Henna Place (in Lekki), Abeokuta (Olumo Rock & Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library) and Badagry Slave Museum and Black History Museum (in Badagry). Next up on the itinerary: get engrossed in the history at Black Heritage Festival, take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Cathedral Church of Christ, kick back and relax at Tarkwa Bay Beach, and explore the wide array of goods at Palms Shopping Mall.
