Jimgbe beach is located in the Lokoja area of Kogi state and is one of the largest and most beautiful beaches in Northern Nigeria. It is a popular spot for canoe and boat rides, photoshoot, sunbathing, and fishing, beach games, picnics and it offers wonderful views of Lokoja waters.
It is easy to mistake Jimgbe for a desert because of the large sand dune deposited in the area, but typically it serves the purpose of a beach.
Although it doesn’t come with constant ocean waves like the beach in Lagos, Jimgbe is still a beautiful site to behold.
Everyone loves beaches. Walking on fine soft sand, cool breeze, and the scenic views are what contributes to the chilling factor of the ultimate beach destination.
