Eleko Beach in Lagos Nigeria

The new favorite beach with fashionable Lagosians is Eleko Beach, a big 60km trip east of the city. You can rent a beach hut for the day here, and get someone to make a barbeque for you. There's also a small market selling interesting art. You'll need to hire a drop taxi to get there. One of the most serene and clean beaches in Lagos, the Kaiyetoro-Eleko beach is well visited during the year. Popular with local families, Eleko Beach offers sporting activities for everyone. The atmosphere is relaxed and rejuvenating for beach combers of all types.
A few kilometres further along the Lekki-Epe 
Expressway, Alpha Beach is also a popular weekend get away for Lagosians. Expect to ‘settle’ some Area Boys in order to park your car. There are lots of eating joints and bars along the beach. Eleko Beach is about 45 minutes drive along the Lekki-Epe Expressway (turn right off the main road by the Total Filling Station). You have to pay around 100 naira to enter. This is perhaps the nicest public beach along the peninsula.

Eleko Beach: 56 km, Lekki-Epe Expressway, Turn right just past Total service station, proceed to toll gate, turn left follow road to Rainbow.

Don't miss a thing!
