Waking up to the sights and sound of the beach is the most relaxing thing ever. It’s so calm and therapeutic and for the first time in a long while, I can say I had a clear head. I was totally at peace…
This past weekend, I went on a spontaneous trip to Ilashe & Tarkwa Bay to chill at the Popbeachclub beach house with other amazing creatives, all thanks to Thebloggersadvocate.
Popbeachclub is a private collection of intimate venues for outdoor activities. They have two beach houses, one at Ilashe beach and the other at Tarkway bay and yes, your girl spent her weekend at both beach houses.
Here are all the details on the beach house and my experience.
There were two meet up points for those of us who went on the trip. One was Farmcity in Lekki and the other was the Lagos boat club in Ikoyi. I met up with Mr Gbenga and my friend Alice, (the brain behind Thebloggersadvocate) and together we all headed to Ikoyi.
Take off time was 4:30 pm but we left at past 5 pm. The trip from the jetty to the beach house at Ilashe took about
2days 25 – 30 mins I think.
It was an all expense paid trip but I asked and was told the trip to Ilashe from the Lagos boat club in Ikoyi costs about N4000 per boat. We were 8 in the boat we took.
The eight of us arrived at the jetty in Ilashe and had to wait for the rest of the crew. Trust us to use the opportunity to take lots of pictures.
The walk from the jetty in ilashe to the beach house is about 10minutes so I recommend you wear comfortable shoes like sneakers, flip flops or even go barefoot as it’s mostly sand.
THE BEACH HOUSE
On arrival, the first thing you see are the cabanas and the coconut trees surrounding the place. It’s one of the most beautiful sights ever.
The beach house at Ilashe has two chalets, 10 cabanas, 1

We were all exhausted by the time everyone got in, so we all showered, ate dinner, had a few glasses of wine and went straight to bed. Well I did, but some people stayed up gisiting and listening to music.
The itinerary for the next morning (Saturday) involved a 45 minutes walk (which wasn’t funny at all) around Ilashe beach. We got to see other beach houses and the beach itself.
