“lots and lots of golden sand”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

Wide open beach with plenty of space not thronged with people. Very nice bathing with facilities nearby. If walking there 'tis quite a long way around the Marina

“Super beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

over 4 km long, very wide and with the cleanest and softest sand, this is one of the best beaches in Europe.

“Amazing pace to walk the dogs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013

This is the perfect beach to walk your dogs, it's long, clean, unspoilt with some great beach bars along the way. Most beaches don't allow dogs so thanks to whoever allows them too on Meia Praia and to all the dog owners who clear up after their pets.

“Good beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

Sansy beach and when we were there in October very quiet. Good restaurants on the beach with good value simple and plain food like sardines with salad. Crystal clear water and yellow sand for 4 kilometers.

“Get your tan here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

While the other beaches in Lagos may be more beautiful, I preferred this beach. The sun disappears too early in the the other beaches due to the cliffs causing shadows and as they other beaches are quite small, with residences behind them, I felt they were a bit crowded... Whereas Praia de Meia was a lot bigger and longer, there was a nice amount of people and you had a lot of space to yourself. The water, I felt, was much safer there too. The other beaches had many stones and rocks and got very deep after only a few metres. All in all i recommend this beach for sunning and swimming :)
