Welcome to Eleko Beach

Eleko Beach

The best beach for Lagos-based visitors is Eleko Beach, located one hour away from Nigeria's frenetic economic heartland. It's clean, has good waves and is a welcome relief from the grime and congestion of the metropolis. Currently it is free of the traders and hawkers that can irritate visitors on beaches around Lagos Island. To get there, head out east on Lekki Expressway for about 19 miles (30km) and turn right at the Total petrol service station.

Information & Facts

English is the official language in Nigeria and is widely used, though many other languages are also spoken.

Nigerian currency is the Naira (NGN), which is divided into 100 kobo. Approved exchange facilities include the major hotels and the airport, but official rates are very high. It is illegal to change money on the street. Credit card fraud is a problem and visitors are advised against the use of credit cards throughout the country. Credit card facilities are also limited. Facilities for changing travellers cheques are also very limited. Prior to travel, visitors should ensure they have a variety of currency options available to them (Sterling, US dollars or Euros) in cash. Travellers should be aware of the prevalence of commercial fraud in, and emanating from, Nigeria.
