Delta State

The Asaba beach at Otuogu is somewhere to visit anywhere you visit the capital of Delta State. Several rivers, creeks, and streams keep the beach in place, and it extends to the main capital city of the state. It also extends into several creeks before emptying into the Atlantic Ocean.
