But, if you are not so particular about heights, don’t worry, LCC provides other fun and stimulating activities like animal hunts; you get to see real-life animals like the proud peacock, or a giant 95-year-old tortoise!
- You could also play chess with life-sized chess pieces! No worries, you don’t have to be so good at chess to do this. Just enjoy the thrill and excitement that comes from chilling on a huge chessboard.
- You can have a picnic with your friends and family on the serene grounds of the centre.
- LCC also has a lot of sights that range from Rotundas, Jungle gym facilities, ponds, to beach volleyball courts among others!

Did somebody say beach? Yes, I did!
Tarkwa Bay is a beach on a peaceful island with a view of the endless ocean that is ooaway from the hustle and bustle of Lagos. It is located on Lagos Island and from the main island, the journey is a pretty exciting one. Because of Tarkwa Bay’s island status, you can only get there by water taxis, exciting yes?
Now, the taxis are just the tip of the iceberg. In Tarkwa Bay, there are numerous adventures that you can enjoy with family and friends. You can decide to go on horseback riding by the dreamy beach, or you could play beach volleyball.
You could also go on a jet ski for a jolly ride on the beach, ride or have a quad bike competition with your friends, or you can play water sports as well, whatever rocks your boat.
Tarkwa Bay is not only serene, it is a perfect spot with amazing scenery. A huge plus is that it is also not as crowded as your regular beach. So, whether you want a bit of alone time with your bae or you need to have a raving hangout with friends, Tarkwa Bay has got you covered!
