Lagos, Nigeria

Banana Island

Google Street View

Banana Island is one of the premier Lagos ‘estates’, and among the better spots for a road run. The main roads around the island feature wide, brick sidewalks. A loop of the island is about 7 km, using 1st Ave & 2nd Ave. on the south side and 3rd Ave. & 4th Ave. on the north side. 2nd Ave. extends to a sports field at the southern end of Banana Island. There are some higher end offices and apartment buildings in the area. For a longer run, most of the streets within Ikoyi are possible to run on.

Banana Island is about 3 km north of our Lekki-Ikoyi Bridge route. Unfortunately, it’s not particularly good running on Banana Island Rd. that connects the bridge to Banana Island.
