Camilo Beach, Lagos

(1,500+ reviews on the web)
Beach
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. Plan your Camilo Beach visit and explore what else you can see and do in Lagos using our Lagos trip itinerary planner.

  • Fantastic small cove with a small beach and a tunnel through the rocks to another beach. Crystal clear water and clean sand. There's a fish restaurant at the top by the car park too.
  • Very nice beach! With different rock formations etc. (I would recommend going through the opening in the cliffs, because the beach there is not as crowded) But in the noon the flood came and the sun was gone.
  • Great beach, beautifully maintained and very friendly as well as authentic bodyguards that will take time to make sure, you wont miss any insiders!
  • Really nice and cosy beach. It can get very crowded during high tight. The view is splendid, so that selfie is gonna look great.
  • Beautiful but tiny beach. In August people squeezed like sardines, so I didn't enjoy it. Amazing views from the cliffs and good restaurant nearby.
