While the usual beaches and tourist attractions are available, there are plenty of other sights that capture the spirit of Lagos. For art-lovers, a visit to the African Artist’s Foundation is an excellent introduction to the continent’s rising stars, while the National Museum has an adjacent crafts village, where visitors can watch artisans at work.
For a change of pace during your trip to Lagos, book a trip around the coast’s grottos – a series of beguiling inlets hidden between dramatic edifices sculpted by the sea.
Back on land, Lagos still has much of its original city walls intact, and these dramatic structures are certainly worth your time. There are also plenty of museums, as well as other locations that hark back to colonial times.
