February is officially the month (yes, month!) of love. You may have lacked the time and resources to jet off to an exotic island on Valentine’s day, but as long as it’s still February, you have time.
There is something very relaxing and serene about the beach that makes it the perfect destination this season. We have put together a list of five (5) lovely beach resorts and clubs in Lagos. You can plan a post-valentine getaway to any of these locations with your spouse, best friends or family.
Whoever you go with, be sure to pack a camera, swim suits, sun hats, sandals and beachwear.
