Banana Island, Lagos

Banana Island, Lagos is home to some of the finest Nigeria real estate. But Banana Island also has the most expensive properties in Nigeria. And prices can be jaw-dropping.

Wow,I love this picture,Lagos has certainly moved past any city or state in Nigeria,interms of the speed and scope of developments taking place,its absolutely breathe taking.It is clear Gov.Fashola's leadership,is inspiring a lot of foreign direct investment like we have never seen before,simply amazing.Thanks for the pictures.

Banana Island is to the South of Ikoyi, so I believe you got to be coming from Akin Adesola in V.I, or go off Ozumba Mbadiwe and go on the on ramp to Akin Adesola before continueing on to Alfred Rewane road and head to South Ikoyi.

Basically Banana Island is connected to Ikoyi. The road strip into Banana Island appears to be Ajegunle Road you should be able to connect to it from one of the Ikoyi roads, maybe coming from Alexander Avenue.

I am not in Nigeria or Lagos as you know, but even if this info is not 100% I am sure that Banana Island is off Ikoyi and if you head South West off Ikoyi from V.I/Ikoyi you will end up there.

Yeah it is North East, but I said...South West because of the quote I saw on wikipedia.


but you know what..they really need..a bridge..from Banana Island to Lekki instead of having to go through V.I. that would be excellent.
