I know a number of Islanders go all the way to the mainland to chill on a weekend. Why? It costs too much on the Island. Some don’t even bother. Staying home is cheaper anyway. Well this article is for you guys. Here are a number of places to chill without having to spend so much.
If you love beaches, this is for you. Tarkwa Bay is an Island, hence it is only accessible through water. With N6,000, you can have all the fun you want. Boarding a boat from the jetty to take you to the bay would cost about N2000 at most. Upon arriving at the beach, you will spend about 1,500 on renting a tent, chair and table. You can easily carry with you snacks, drinks, and some beach balls or whatever game you may want to engage in for fun. If swimming is your forte, you can wear your trunks underneath your outfit. Tarkwa bay is one of the safest beaches in Nigeria. You can learn to surf as well on the beach.
