Moist Beach Club [MBC], contrary to what most people think, isn’t just a beach.
It is rather a combination of a beach and a club.
When going there during the day, treat it like you’re going to a beach, but when going there at night, treat it like you’re going to a club.
Moist Beach Club is located within the premises of the popular Oniru Royal Beach.
The beach club is owned by a member of the Oniru Royal Family, Prince Dapo Oniru.
And if you’re well conversant with the Lagos entertainment industry, you should know that MBC is one of the top clubs, visited by popular foreign personalities like — Twitter’s Jack Dorsey and Hollywood’s actress Rosario Dawson.
The above paragraphs help conjure an idea of what MBC is, but there’s a lot more I can tell you.
And if will like to know more, read this content till the end.
The place is one of the nicest beaches I’ve seen in Lagos. It’s not that big, but it’s big enough for people to have a great time there.
Unlike some other Lagos beaches, where you’ll find things like horse riding, quad bike riding, local food vendors, etc, you won’t find these kinds of activities at MBC.
Or simply put,
MBC is the kind of place to go, when interested in some peace and tranquillity at a beach.
When it gets dark,
MBC which may look like a beach during the day, becomes more of a club at night.
In other words,
At night, the kinds of fun you’ll find at a standard club, are what you’ll find here — strippers, alcoholic drinks, dress code, energizing music, etc.
This further means that if you’re the kind who’ll like to spend a night at a beach, MBC may not be an ideal location, since it becomes a different thing entirely at night.
Moist Beach Club also has a restaurant.
The restaurant is open during the day and at night.
The restaurant is standard,
And you’ll find a wide variety of local and international dishes there.
I must warn that things are quite expensive here, so expect to spend more for the same type of food you’ll find at other regular restaurants in Lagos.
As regards food hygiene,
I can assure you that there’s nothing to worry about.
I and a lot of friends have eaten dishes prepared here, and on no single occasion has anyone of us had any health issue from doing so.
Moist Beach Club has one of the finest beach waters in Lagos.
The water there is well-maintained and a great example of what a beach water should be like.
But if some reason you won’t like to play in it, there is also a swimming pool you can play in.
The swimming pool,
As you will expect, is standard. It’s not super large, but large enough to have a lot of fun swimming in it.
There are lifeguards available, so be assured in the event that something wants to go wrong, there are professionals ready to save lives.
Getting into Moist Beach Club requires paying an entrance fee of N1,000.
This fee is also what applies on Saturdays, Sundays, and other special days.
But I must mention that, the entrance fee you’re paying isn’t going into the pocket of MBC. Rather, the fee you’re paying is going into the pocket of Oniru Royal Beach, because MBC is located within Oniru.
For those who bring cars along, there is a large parking area available.
But as you’ll expect, parking your car comes at a price, a price of N200 per car.
And just like in the case of entrance fee, whatever parking fee you pay, is instead going into the pocket of Oniru Royal Beach.

Other things worth knowing
Profiling truly exists at MBC
Before my first visit to Moist Beach Club, I heard rumors that the staffs at MBC do profile people and tend to discriminate.
I heard that,
If a lady is not with a guy, she may not be allowed in.
I heard that,
If you don’t dress affluently, you may not be treated with importance.
I heard that,
If you don’t appear somewhat slutty at night [ladies], you may not be allowed in.
I also thought those are just some misunderstandings.
But after visiting MBC and paying careful attention a good number of times, I can confirm that this allegation is true.
I’ve personally not been treated poorly, but I’ve seen [with my two eyes] people receiving this kind of poor treatment.
The staffs can be rude
Another thing worth knowing is that the staff at MBC can be rude at times.
They are professional a lot of times, but there are some cases when they act rudely for reasons you won’t be able to figure out.
Questions you may have
Are children allowed?
I don’t know of any official MBC rule that says children are not allowed. But also, I don’t expect you to think of this place as a place to come to with children.
Even during the day, when the place is more like a beach, I don’t find it ideal for children to come here, as the place is clearly meant for adults.
Children may be allowed in, but don’t be surprised if you have any bad experience bring kids here.
Are pets allowed?
I also don’t know of any official MBC rule that goes against the bringing in of pets.
But just like in the case of children, MBC isn’t designed to be that kind of place.
It’s better not to come along with a pet.
As you’ve probably heard people say, Moist Beach Club is one of the best beach clubs we have in Lagos.
And aside from the profiling issue and the occasional unnecessary rudeness from the staff, you should have no problem.
So if you’ll like to visit MBC, feel free to do so.
