One place you definitely have to visit when in Port Harcourt is the amazing man-made Port Harcourt Tourist Beach created along the Kolabi Creek line, old Port Harcourt. Commissioned in 1988, the man-made beach was created to serve as a major landmark for recreation, and relaxation. Its location has an advantage over others as it is on the edge of the city, such that visitors can take a walk through the hiking trails. The designers of the beach created a serene environment for visitors. The white sand and crystal clear seawater make the beach look more appealing.

The Beach has several bars and restaurants where they serve various kinds of seafood. People can enjoy playing beach soccer and volleyball at the beach, which serves a great purpose for enjoyment.

The government plays a vital role in protecting and maintaining the beach so as to maintain the growing number of visitors. Both locals and foreigners visit the tourist beach to have a great time.

The best time to visit the Port Harcourt Tourist Beach is between November and February due to the fact that there is significantly less rainfall which makes a day out on the beach perfect. To fully enjoy a time out at the Port Harcourt Tourist Beach, it is best to go with a group.
