Just back from Lagos

We arrived back from our 2 week holiday in Lagos yesterday and had a great time.

Lagos is a lovely town with lots of pretty winding streets, plenty of lovely restaurants and a gorgeous beach.

We visited Praia de Luz, Burgau and Alvor whilst there but mainly stayed at the pool or beach during the day and wandered into town in the evenings.

Just sad to be back in London now!

Hi Kedi

Would you say that Lagos is a good place for teenage girls aged 16 and 18? They'd wouldn't be looking for any particularly high powered nightlife, just hanging out where other teens may go. Is it safe at night, if they want to wander on their own without the oldies watching them?!

We went to Turkey this year and it was mega hot! What were the temperatures like in Lagos and where did you stay? Looking at maybe Crete or Portugal next year as we haven't been to either - mind you, there's lots of places we haven't been to!!

Glad you had a great time.

Hi Fab45,

I would say it would be great for teens. the old town where most of the bars and restaurants are is quite small so they would be able to wander around safely on there own. There are always lots of people around and it has a lovely atmosphere with all the street entertainers.

The temperature was lovely, around 30 most days so perfect really, we could stay out all day without getting too hot. We go to Turkey most years for our holiday and it was much cooler in Lagos, much more comfortable. It got quite chilly sometimes at night and we found we needed a cardi most evenings but at least we could sleep easily without bothering with air conditioning.

Hi and thanks Paul and Kedi

That sounds brilliant, just what we're after. We loved Turkey, but it was just a bit too hot and we do like to get about a bit rather than just the sunbed and pool!

Any suggestions on where to stay would be grand. Obviously, there's loads of info on here, but there's nothing like personal experience to help a decision along.

Thanks again.
