Apapa Overview

Apapa is another district of Lagos state and is the major port of Lagos. It is located to the west of Lagos Island.

Though Apapa is close to Lagos Island, there is no connecting ferry between these two places. Local residents mainly use car and bus or the danfo(small yellow bus). Foreigners do not usually take public transport except for the bikes or okada. Traffic is usually heavy but generally eased up during the weekends.

Since it is the main seaport, security is tight around apapa.

Apapa is host to a large community of Lebanese and Indian people.
