Lagos Island

On Lagos Island is the Lagos Lagoon a large protected harbour on the coast of West Africa. The island was home to the Yoruba fishing village of Eko, which grew into the modern city of Lagos. The city has now spread out to cover the neighbouring islands as well as the adjoining mainland.

Historically, Lagos Island “Isale eko” was home to the Brazilian Quarter of Lagos where the majority of the slave trade returnees from Brazil settled. Many families lived on Broad Street in the Marina.
