For tourists who intends to visit Tarkwa Bay, these tips will help them have an unforgettable trip.
Carry a waterproof beach bag
Since you will encounter water most of the time you spend at Tarkwa Bay, it is advisable to carry a waterproof beach bag. This will prevent water from finding its way into your bag and probably damaging your valuables.
Go prepared with your swimsuit
If you plan to swim at the Bay, wear your swimsuit as part of your clothes. This is because there are no changing rooms at the Bay. You can remove your clothes with only the swimsuit remaining.
Get ready to rent beach chairs
Only a handful of things are free at the Tarkwa Bay. One thing that you are guaranteed not to get for free are chairs and shades to relax. You have to pay. However, ensure that you do not overpay. Find out from others how much they paid if you really need these chairs.
Pack only essentials to prevent theft
Like some public beaches in Lagos, there are thugs and urchins at Tarkwa Bay. So, pack as light as possible so that you do not give them the chance to steal your valuables. Even if you go with a whole lot, ensure that someone is on hand to watch them.
Go with your food and drinks
To help you cut cost and save money, it is better you go with your own foods and drinks. You do not need to patronise the vendors at the beach because it may be expensive.
Do not forget towels, sunscreen, and balls
Do not forget your towels, sunscreen, floating pads, and balls. They are accessories to enhance and make your trip more enthralling. Have fun!
