Attican Beach Resort

You get an artsy vibe as soon as you drive into Attican beach. The first thing you notice is the elevated stage where people showcase their dance moves. There’s a playground that caters for kids and “agbayas” like me (I know I can’t be alone). Closer to the shore there are huts of different sizes which you pay to use that’s if you came with your own beach gear and refreshments. Having fun at Attican beach Ajah is almost a guarantee and it boasts of neatness, safety and elegance.

Back to the beach, Eleko beach is a nice place. It is ideal for taking long walks (I know its cliche but that one is for your pocket).

Alpha Beach


This is not necessarily in the Ajah axis but then again its not Lekki phase 1 so we have to let it feel among.
