This is the main beach on Victoria Island, alongside Ahmadu Bello Way and one of the more popular beaches in Lagos State. Bar Beach is the main (inner city) beach and runs from the Institute of Oceanography in the west to the Eko Hotel in the east.
Bar Beach is named after the sand bars that characterised the coastline of Lagos, not because of the myriad of bars that run along the beach itself (a popular misconception!).
Lagos Bar Beach, the most accessible and most visited beach in Lagos especially during festive periods, has somewhat lost most of its attractions due to the massive concrete works being done along the coastline.
However, those who do not mind its artificiality will still find the environment soothing. Horse riding, swimming, beach football and picnic activities still go on at the beach and those who are prepared to go further down to Kuramo side will find it relatively calmer and private.
Leisure providers at the beach still set up beach seat which they rent out to visitor, though they are no longer as preponderant as they used to be.
