Ikoyi is an upmarket residential island separated by a narrow waterway from Lagos Island to the west, after independence in 1960 the big, airy houses on large plots of land were set aside for government officials as part of a so-called government reserved area (GRA) before being refurbished and sold off to private owners.
Recent development has seen the construction of high-rise apartment blocks and much of the leafy charm is now gone. Most people opt to live in a serviced estate i.e. with a shared pool and gym
