There are plenty, wtf?
post #83522 of 117670
have you been to southern California? Then you will know there are none, here.
post #83523 of 117670
Yes, I have. A beach is a beach is a beach. As far as the people/ambiance etc., that doesn't change the definition of a beach. At the end of the day, they are still beaches. If you surf, be a man and tough out the cold up here. If you just wanna tan and build sand castles, then wait until summer.

If you are ever in the country you should give me a shout, my dad has a beach house on one of the islands around the Lagos creek and that beach is pretty nice.

Nigeria is definitely not as bad as all these documentaries make it out to be though. The sections on advice for travelers to Nigeria on all these various country websites are even worse.

Just from word of mouth from a nice fellow down here in Palm Beach who recommended them. Sounds good man, I am working my way down the Caribbean, then looping South America and hopefully up the east coast of Africa starting in South Africa then onto Europe and Asia/Pacific. Although I get this "watch your ass" warning from the US every time I ask about travel to Africa. Will probably have to skip Liberia, Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast etc. Every summer I have 3 months of notching beaches of my list, been a long time dream of mine

Meh, like I said before, all those warnings are pretty silly. As long as you don't do anything you wouldn't do in your own city you will be fine. Places like Sierra Leone are so laid back it is unreal. You would have to be really unlucky and/or silly to get hurt while traveling there. Only been to Liberia once, but while I was there I had quite a bit of fun. You should also check out The Gambia and of course, Senegal on your tour too.

Heh, ment to say West Africa. Only reason I say that is its going to be a pain in the ass with the questions and not to mention visas. Is there a thread around here about travel to other countries? Have to search, would be interested in something like that. Derail over

Beaches in Bénin are also nice, btw Ivory coast is super safe and thriving once again so those warnings are bunk. Don't go to DRC and you'll be fine, I must say that place is def unsafe. I wouldn't hang around Northern Nigeria but then I'm not the expert so I'll defer to your superior knowledge.

Northern Nigeria is a hard one to figure out. If there are bombings happening in Nigetia chances are it is around that area. I will say this though, abuja is nice from what I heat and I would love to visit some of those mallam's palaces. By the way fuuma have you been to Nigeria?

I do have some family living in the North and they are Christian, and they say things are a bit touchy in a few areas. It is dangerous around churches, but otherwise it's just business as usual from all indications. At least in Abuja, Jos (which is extremely beautiful with weather closer to temperate climes and definitely worth visiting for anyone interested in touring Nigeria), Kaduna and Niger states up north. I wouldn't advise anyone to just go and roam around some of the northern states though without at least knowing a few people living there (places like Maiduguri) as there has been some pretty random violence and unrest in those areas not only related to boko haram but every bit as deadly.

Benin is indeed nice, I should visit again actually, been a while since the last time I crossed the border into Cotonou.

EDIT - Bene, the tshirt is CdG SHIRT. They seem to have had them in various colours this season and SS12 as well. Check oki-ni, hervia and a few other stockists that carry CdG SHIRT
