Down poured heavy showers of rain upon the stretch of Victoria Island in Lagos, flooding the lagoon banks on its northern flank and soaking the white sands of its beaches on the southern flank. Yet, the ocean raged as usual, inundating the Naija coastline with its invigorating saline fluids- its Atlantic waters and SE trade winds. It’s one of those Saturdays in Lasgidi, and Lagosians once again trooped out to recreate and ease off the accumulated stress of everyday city work-life.
Among the numerous beaches lining the Lagos coast, the new Atican Beach Resort stands out with its flamboyant aura. Perfectly positioned in a beautiful and well accessible location, its enchanting, serene and secure environment offer every visiting tourist an experience of a lifetime. Within its confines lurk two mischievous baboons, one tied to a tree trunk and the other (younger) is allowed to roam free. The roaming baboon is about the greatest and most fascinating attraction at the Atican Beach. It will not give any visitor a moment of rest until it’s been given a part of the visitor’s food, snack, drink or any other edibles.
You bring your dog to the beach and this baboon sees it as an intruder. You set down to eat barbeque or take ice cream and the baboon makes you its latest pal. No wonder the Atican Beach has recently become the choice recreation and holiday getaway for kids in Ajah area of Lekki.
The Atican beach can be easily accessed through Abraham Adesanya Estate Road in Ajah area of Lekki. The road leading to the beach is well tarred and takes one through about 10minutes drive from Abraham-Adesanya Estate, off the Lekki-Epe Expressway.
Among the numerous attractions at beach are a number of guestrooms for lodging, children play ground, basket ball and beach volleyball courts, snooker table, baboons, barbecue and àsun stands, night club, various beach side chalets, concert platforms etc.
For Lagosians who crave for solitude or fun in a natural environment free of danger, the Atican Beach resort is the place to be.
