The beach is one of the best places to have a fantastic holiday, weekend or picnic. From Lekki, to Bar Beach, Elegushi, and Sultan (all in Lagos) these beach fronts are frequented by fun seekers. The soothing, cool breeze, the rhythmic movement of the waves and walking on the beachfront hand-in-hand makes a beach trip all the more thrilling. If you intend to have an unforgettable experience at any of the aforementioned beaches, here are some helpful hacks.
Carry your sunglasses
Sunscreen is always useful to protect your eyes from the scorching sun. This is the same purpose it serves when you visit the beach with your lover, aside from just shielding your eyes, it also adds to your swag and makes you look good. Heading for the beach, do not leave these behind!
Hide your goodies properly
The beach is peopled by the good, the bad and the ugly. For your baggage not to suddenly develop wings, hide it properly, carry it anywhere you go or ask someone who is staying behind to keep an eye on it. Do not just go wild and neglecting your luggage while having a great time at the beach.
Do try not swim if you don’t know how
It is not compulsory for you to swim at the beach, especially if you cannot swim. The result of a huge wave sweeping you away can be disastrous. Unfortunately, many beach-farers do not heed this warning because they want to swim at all cost. If you want to play in the water, do not go too far in. It is better to be safe than sorry.
Go with a change clothes
Whether you swim better than an Olympic champion or not, you should bring extra clothes. Some cannot resist the temptation of the sea waves and you cannot stop them from getting in. To stay dry after a dip in water, pack a change of clothes for the journey home.
Do not forget the snacks
If you want to save some money, you should take snacks along with you. In fact, if you can, you should take everything you need with you to the beach. It will save you the extra hassle of finding something to snack on if the food stalls open late.
