Weekends are the perfect time to unwind after a stressful work week. Jumia Travel shares 4 exotic destinations to help you do just that at a minimal cost.
THE BEACHWhether it’s Oniru Beach, Elegushi Beach, Eleko Beach, Badagry Beach, Tarkwa Bay Beach or Bar Beach, the beach is one of the best spots to relax and unburden yourself at a low cost. Enjoy the serenity and scenery the beach has to offer. Enjoy its activities and maybe even invite some friends to share the experience with you.
SEASIDE BARThere are a number of such bars in Lagos, both on the Island and Mainland. Make use of them. Sit and have a drink or two, by yourself or with a couple of friends. Talk about life, experiences, share your burdens with friends over a drink and celebrate your victories. If you prefer solitude, sit and observe, enjoy the view and scenery, reflect and make plans for a better tomorrow. You can also order good food and have yourself a good time.
The Bush Bar, situated off Oyinkan Abayomi (Formerly Queens Drive), Ikoyi, Lagos, is one seaside bar to consider.
