Whispering palms is a recreational/holiday resort located at badagry. It’s a great place to visit when you need to unwind or just need a rest from the busy lagos life. It’s very serene.
Some of the side attractions are – pool, mini zoo,playing ground for kids, boat ride, a bar, chalets for rent(if you plan to spend a few days or the night) and the best view of the ocean.
I have hardly done anything for leisure this year because I feel like the nice places are too expensive and beyond my current financial capacity , you know your “girl” be frugal and always on a budget . anyhoo my friend and I got talking and we(more like she) concluded that I needed to spend some money and have fun because you only live once. We decided on whispering Palms which happened to be way cheaper than I expected it to be. Preparations were made to visit in August but we kept postponing because one thing on the other kept coming up. We were finally able to go sometime in September. On the D-day it rained a little which almost made us cancel again but I am glad we didn’t because the sky cleared up and sun shine was epic.
The entrance fee is five hundred naira(500)for adults and three hundred naira(300) for kids,food and drinks are not allowed into the premises.
The staffs were very nice and cordial, they offered us a plate of groundnuts each and some sweets free of charge.we wanted a boat ride but it was expensive, we were billed five thousand naira (5000) for the ride and I felt that it was too much so we didn’t pay, the cheaper alternative was to pay for a paddle boat which you have to pedal your self, we didn’t ride the paddle boat because pedaling by ourselves would have been too much work.
Another thing to enjoy is the coconut water drunk directly from fresh coconut, They also had coconut oil for sale.
I didn’t really take pictures of the other parts of the resorts because the view of the ocean was breathtaking plus my friend wanted to do a mini shoot for her upcoming fashion label and by the time we were done, time was far spent.
One thing I really enjoyed about the visit to whispering Palms was the scenery, its so beautiful and colorful. The only down side was the distance, considering I stay on the mainland and badagry is also on the mainland it was still far. The roads aren’t exactly in good condition, it was a bumpy ride.
I would definitely love to visit again. I hope you enjoyed reading and found this post helpful.
