Banana Island Lagos, Nigeria's Most Exclusive And Expensive Neighborhood In Africa

Banana Island Lagos, Nigeria's most exclusive Estate.
Banana Island is Nigeria’s most extravagant and expensive neighbourhood - on par with the Seventh Arrondissement in Paris,  La Jolla in San Diego, California and Tokyo's Shibuya or Roppongi neighbourhoods.

The exclusive playground of Nigeria’s obscenely wealthy, Banana Island is an artificial island built on reclaimed land in Ikoyi-Lagos. From an aerial view, the island is actually shaped like a banana, hence its name. Sitting on 1.6 million square meters, the sumptuous island is divided into about 535 plots ranging in size from 1,000 square meters and 3,000 square meters.

Banana Island is a place of unrivalled opulence and grandeur. It’s an entirely different world from other parts of the country. It’s a gated community, and its inhabitants enjoy such luxuries as underground electrical systems and water supply networks, 24 hour-electricity supply (the only other place such privileged is the Nigerian President’s residence), extremely tight security, good road layout, a central sewage system and treatment plant and the well-cherished company of fellow wealthy folks.
