QUICK GUIDE

At the time of publication (2019), most of the content I saw online about Bics Garden and Boat Club were social media uploads, Google Maps contributions and Lagos directories.

Apparently, they’re not-so-many Bics reviews on the web and it’s either quite a number of travel and lifestyle bloggers haven’t visited yet or don’t feel like they need to write about it.

So, if this has been super helpful to you, don’t forget to share with friends, family or loved ones because that could bridge an “information gap” between Bics Garden and Boat Club and intending visitors.

HOW DID I GET THERE?

My getaway to Bics Garden Lekki was a swift one. I left my house in Ikorodu around 9:45 hours and arrived the venue by 11:00 hours. Although, that Saturday wasn’t a busy one, unsteady rainfall almost ruined my trip.

Alighting the BRT at Marina, I boarded a bus headed for Lekki while staring at Google Maps all through (I didn’t want to get lost). The second leg of the trip lasted for a couple minutes and eventually, I alighted again at Lekki Peninsula Scheme 1 or Phase 1 for a bike ride to Bics Garden and Boat Club.
