The best aspects of this beach are GOD given. Sun, sand, sea, surf. But man has ruined the place. Rubbish everywhere, touts a d bullies there and I would not chance swimming in that water for pollution. Nigerians literally need to clean up there act here. Tarkwah bay beach could be better I think.

Not a very clean beach but it has a lot of footfalls and lots of activities going on. A good place to hang out with friends and just chill but be prepared to pay both gate as well as packing fees.

We often cycle here - long stretch of beach, meeting nice locals, stopping by for cool drinks along the way. its a great place to get out from the hectic city life. Only downside is the collection of toll fees by some menacing looking youths which we don't know where the money goes to - best to go as a... More
