@Estyrhema

exactly, places like aganya, ihuoma, orosikiri, where u can't find your way out once u get in. Apart from NLNG RA and finima dat are ok and  peaceful to live in, bonny main town is whacked. coupled with the fact dat most of the chicks there have babies,  

Are you are CLOWN?

why dont you shut your stinky mouth on what you dont know.

FOOL.

Its not ihouma

the correct spelling is IWO-AMA (Lawful Land) because it is the area with respect to law and offenders are punish duely

I have a feeling the South South will make a great tourist destination. Haven't been there but Obudu tops my list.

Poster, previous replies have provided the answers you need. But the only safe and secure place on Bonny Island are the Nigeria LNG RAs. Outside the RAs and GRAs, the rest is not better than Ajegunle.

The Bonny Main Island comprises of the Old Town and the New Town. from Beach all way to Hospital Road (LGA Secretariat) consist of Old Bonny Town while there after consist of the new Bonny Town.

there are lots of nice Hotels such as Mercy In Guest House, (Orosikiri) Hotel de Telavee, (New Road), Elizabeth Suite ( Agbalamabie) few more very very lovely ones i cant recall there names.

@elomatic,

There is Telavee hotel in Bonny and also in Finima. Both are decent. Apart from these there are also few decent hotels in Bonny. Am not too sure of the names. if you send me a mail on halfcurrent@gmail.com; i could proabably confirm names and let you know. Meanwhile, are comming on the local boat or NLNG or Shell boat?

Hi,

I would like to go to Bonny Island for 2 days. Friday there and Sunday (14.-16.October) back. I would fly to PHC out of Abuja. Is there any decent accommodation in Bonny? I dont need super luxus, just something clean and safe.

Many thanks for help!

are you working with NLNG?

if yes, then i dont think you have any probs living in Bonny.

The NLNG part of Bonny is eldorado as you dont have to lift a finger to do anything

The amenities are on point:

laundry done

taxis come to your door at the touch of a button

electricity is 100% constant

rooms fixed with everything u need

state of the art Gym and moreover, free food

if youre not living here, then i dont know what the other side of Bonny looks like

The only prob is security prob. Not sure if the militancy on the sea to Bonny has abated

Missed an attack by whiskers in 2007

Bonny Island is small nice island. about 1hr speed boat cruise from Phc. If you have someone that works in NLNG, he/she could help you book a sit on their coy boat (which is bigger, comfortable, and safer) or their fixed wing Twin Otter plane, which is about 25min from phc.

The island is generally comprising of two towns, Bonny (which is bigger) and Finima. It used to be very busy back in 2000 till about 2006/7 during the NLNG contruction era of trains 1 - 6; there were a lot of expatraites then. As a matter of fact, it used to a place with the highest concentration of people from different nationalities. Now that construction of train 7 is on hold, the island is not too busy again, but it is still ok. In terms of safety, all i can say is that the JTF has brought some sense of safety on the island for now.

what else again is there to say, well feel free to post any other questions. i am currently based on Bonny Island.
