Lagos: Discover this pearl of Africa’s west coast

Nigeria’s largest city Lagos is blessed with golden sand, clear turquoise waters and legendarily friendly locals. To experience the last of these, head down to the city’s Freedom Park, a family-friendly haven of greenery and communal gathering by day and, come nightfall, a buzzing arena of street food, music and performance. Lagos is also a hub of African culture, to which the Nike Art Gallery (nothing to do with the sportswear brand) bears rich testament with its showcase of Nigerian artists, sculptors, and artisans. The impressive contemporary National Theatre is well worth a visit even if you don’t catch a performance. With an evolving calendar of events, from talks to exhibitions, this striking central landmark is a must-see. Nature lovers should not miss the city’s Lekki Conservation Centre, with its enchanting mangroves home to all sorts of wildlife. In contrast, the province of Banana Island is an architect's dream, boasting skyscrapers and futuristic real estate.
