Coconut Beach: It’s a sunny vacation day, and you want to get lost from the fast lane of the urban life? Coconut beach is the perfect getaway. It is a beautiful beach in the coastal town of Badagry, west of Lagos. The beach is attractively set in an area surrounded by coconut trees. About 20 miles towards the border of Nigeria and the Republic of Benin, Coconut Beach is accessible through the Lagos-Badagry expressway. The beach, which has the historical reputation of being a centre for slave trade in the 1800s, is pleasant and fascinating, and it provides excellent holiday relaxation. Visitors who are unaccustomed to the tropical sun are advised to wear hats as it can be rather warm at mid-day.
