Don't stop the beat

From Fuji to Afrobeat, Lagos is at the heart of the Nigerian music scene. It's changing all the time so ask a local for tips on where to find the hottest gigs. 

Hit the beach

Lagos has more than a dozen gorgeous beaches, from the lively Bar Beach on Victoria Island, to the more peaceful Lighthouse Beach, which you might just have to yourself. 

Check out the view

You'll find the sacred Olumo Rock about an hour away from Lagos, in the town of Abeokuta. Hire a guide to explain its fascinating history on the walk to the top. 

Get ready to haggle

Sharpen up your bargaining skills and head to Jankara Market, which sells everything from fabric and jewellery to traditional medicine. Haggling isn’t just permitted – it's expected. 

Escape to the country

For a complete change of pace, head to the Lekki Conservation Centre. Take the 2km boardwalk trail, keeping your eyes open for monkeys, birds and even crocodiles.
