So I intended to go to Casa off Shore for a week to go surfing with a friend, we got there and just didn't want to leave! Everyone there was so enthusiastic and friendly we stayed for a second week to try out kite surfing...which is amazing! The wind was fantastic and the bay is enclosed so there's no danger of ending up out at sea, the instructors were so keen to teach and were patient when I repeatedly faceplanted into the sea, I went home and bought my own kit straightaway! Having never been on holiday to the same place twice Ive been back 3 times in 6 months....and that's definately from being around Casa off Shore. The best way of describing Lagos is a massive playground because there's so much to do there...have now tried out surfing, wakeboarding, skydiving and kitesurfing through Casa and have met so many different people from round the world who were all having a great time. Because Lagos town is only ten minutes walk away it means you can overindulge in drinking/dancing as much as you want (good cocktails and the green wine is amazing) or you can head to the beach and then chill out at Casa if you want a quiet night in (sofas/hammocks/jecuzzi and very nice dog to cuddle:))
Lagos is lovely town and the food there is really good...im a massive fan of fish and prawns and could quite happily eat everyday at the blue room. We went up to the massive fort nearby as well which is huge and the last point before the atlantic starts...worth a visit if you want a day out.
The staff at casa are brilliant..they're very organised and work hard to make sure everyone is getting the most of whatever they want from their holiday..but somehow manage to chill out and have a good time with you too. I would recommend Casa off Shore in Lagos to anyone, it's clean, comfortable, relaxed and it was great meeting people travelling in groups, by themselves and in couples..everyone's lovely and gets along (and many seem to be planning their next trip back before they leave!) Kitesurfing is so much fun, i can't wait to go back and play in the sun again and meet whoever is staying at casa next time!
