- Tarkwa is a private sheltered man made bay and beach created during the formation of the Lagos harbour. The beach was shaped by the moles used to form the inlet to the harbour and covered with sand dredged from the bottom of the channel. As a result the water is a lot calmer than the exposed Atlantic coastline elsewhere around Lagos and has safe bathing even for children and it is only accessible by boat from the mainland. It is also possible to surf in a corner of Tarkwa Bay and other water sports such as Jet Skiing and Water Skiing are fairly common. Also you get a chance of seeing the first lighthouse in nigeria at the lighthouse beach, a walking distance from the bay.
