The Railway Compound itself is an oasis of tranquillity, far removed from the hustle and bustle of the city.

4. Go swimming with nature at Tarkwa Bay

Lagos has countless coves and beaches that will capture your heart. Boasting sugar-white beaches, sometimes clear waters and astounding coral reefs just offshore, they are holiday-brochure perfect.

But Tarkwa Bay is the safest beach to swim at. Artificially controlled by sand filling, the island also boasts beautiful resorts and offers water sport activities.
