Camilo Beach, Lagos

4.6
#2 of 64 in Outdoors in Lagos
The secluded, golden sand of Camilo Beach, surrounded by Baroque-like cliffs and grottos, features a soft ocean floor as well as precipices with mysterious alleyways. Nestled at the bottom of a cliff, the small beach can be accessed either by descending more than 240 stairs or by boat. Spread your towel across the warm sand and catch some rays, and swim in the calm turquoise waters, sheltered from strong winds. At the top of the cliffs you'll see a restaurant, where you can try some freshly caught fish while taking in the wide open views of the ocean.

  • A small beach, which looks really nice! If you come early you can choose a good place close to the rocks. Later during the day, the place gets a little crowded. The water is cristal clear and you are able to snorkel in the water. Definitely one of the nicest beaches I've seen so far.
  • Beautiful beach with incredible views. Definitely worthy the many steps you have to climb.
  • It's very small, but this is the most beautiful beach I have ever seen in my entire life! I advise you not to visit in August, because than it's too crowded and you can't enjoy its beauty. Go in may!
  • Beautiful, simple beach. Not very big so best when it's not too crowded.
  • Very nice and cosy beach - it´s worth the 210 steps

Where to stay in Lagos

The historical city core of Lagos is packed full of colorful buildings and bustling streets, some of which date as far back as the medieval period. Though the hotels in the central district are on the expensive side, you can put yourself right in the middle of the city's best restaurants, bars, and tourist attractions by reserving a room there. The center and outlying residential neighborhoods also boast plenty of more affordable options, including smaller hotels, guesthouses, and family-run inns that offer fewer amenities but put you in good position to get out and about on foot. As Lagos is a relatively small town, you'll be within walking distance of both of its premier stretches of beach from nearly any lodging. Those with a car or transportation can get even further afield to experience other nearby coastal areas.
