Calabar beach

This is one of the coolest sea shores in Nigeria. Located in Calabar – one of the most popular tourist cities in the country – the beach is a large, family-friendly area for a great day out either alone or with the kids (with plenty of meals on sale too), and those wanting to take a stroll along the stretch of footpath will also get the chance to enjoy a measure of serenity. The beach has plenty of parking for day-trippers and vendors that offer food and drink.

Asaba beach

Delta state has its fair share of beaches, but the Asaba beach is one of its best; thanks to the wonderful scenery. The setting is fascinating as you are surrounded by coconut and palm trees, creeks, rock formations and clean beach sand. It is the perfect place to relax on a picnic, go surfing, play volleyball, sun-bathe or enjoy a beautiful sunset at the beach while gorging on local grilled fish in the evening.

Finima Beach

Set in the small town of Finima in Bonny Island, Rivers State, this beach is surrounded by long stretches of beaches stemming from the Atlantic Ocean. There is all-day free parking that makes getting a decent spot without having to pay through the nose a viable option – if you arrive early enough. Once you don your swimming gear, it is a possible to spend an entire day in the area as there are plenty of activities to keep you busy. The beach is patronized by expatriates working in Nigeria NLNG plant and locals for picnic, relaxation and refreshment.

Ibeno Beach

Ibeno beach is an eye-catching sea coast which stretches to James Town on the Atlantic, in Akwa Ibom State. The place is perfect for recreational activities as there are facilities for water sports. However the growing number of visitors recorded at this time of the year puts a damper on its charm as a quiet getaway.
