“Close to Lagos”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Nice and close to Lagos and it is quite a good beach, nice and sandy, with two bars on the beach. However, you can find more beautiful beaches if you are willing to drive a bit more.

“Great sandy beach”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

Wide sandy quiet beach. This is our favorite beach in Lagos (we tested several and sticked to this one in the end). You can get to this beach either by bus (blue line) or walking. If you come from the other side of Lagos (across the river) you can take a boat (0,6€/pax) to cross the river and get next to the beach. There is also a beach bar and sunbeds facilities.

“Perfect but windy ”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

It would be the perfect beach if it was not for the wind which is present almost everyday.
The water is cold, but that is how I like it. The beach is very long and you always find a spot without many people.

“Windy...”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

The beach was a little too windy for our taste, but if you are into water sports, this is the place to go and rent jet skis and related activities!

“Day at The beach”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

My girlfriend and I decided to spend a relaxing day at this Meia-Praia and it was amazing. There were only a few old couples who were maybe 40/50mts away from us but that was it. The beach was very clean and the water wasn't cold at all. Small tip: the beach is 5Kms long so the further you go from the city, the less people will be at the beach.
