Today, as a tourism enthusiast and tourism writer, I discovered the world’s longest swimming pool, located right here in Africa, Lagos, Nigeria.
For those who dont know it, the world’s longest swimming pool with a palmwine bar, has been an openly kept secret for quite a while, because like me, most tourists just stumble on it.
But before now, it has been a favourite spot for picnickers, visitors and tourists who have been regular guests and visitors at the La Campagne Tropicana Beach Resort Ibeju-Lekki.
The African beach themed resort which boasts of being on a 65-acre land with natural ecosystem, lending support to the Atlantic Ocean’s sandy beach, freshwater lake and mangrove forest, with a stand-out swimming pool with a palmwine bar that has attracted tourists from around the world.
But guess what!
The longest beach swimming pool along with a palmwine bar! A great combo indeed.
Now, I understand that there’s no other place in the world that such can be found!
So, no competition, no contest, and guests at La Campagne Tropicana Beach Resort relish enjoying the clean water of the pool, though several other swimming pools adorn different parts of the resort.
Yes, it the longest beach swimming pool with a palmwine bar, long enough to accommodate various water sports activities which is usually done here and good for exclusive pool parties!
Feel like just relaxing in the open air, here’s a good serene place especially early in the morning, when you can read a novel or flip through a magazine.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner by the longest swimming pool with palmwine bar is also a common sight here.
Here, authors find the much needed peace to write. Creative painters re-discover their brushes to paint masterpieces and later thank the founder, Otunba Wanle Akinboboye, for weaving a pure blend of an African themed resort, whose environment inspires and awaken talents.
A Palmwine bar, a natural plus to the environment, elucidating the African village, even within a 4- star luxury resort!
