Meia Praia, Lagos

4.6
#3 of 83 in Outdoors in Lagos
Soak up the sun and splash around in the Atlantic at Meia Praia, a long, wide, golden sand beach at the edge of an estuary. Hailed as a Blue Flag beach for impeccable cleanliness, the 4.5 km (2.8 mi) seafront features summer water sports, year-round surfing and body boarding, and nature walks. To cool off or regain strength after a good swim, choose from among a selection of bars and restaurants along the coast offering fresh, local fish. Due to its length and width, this beach somehow never seems too crowded, even during peak season.

  • The best beach. Beautiful.
  • Lovely, little windy though.
  • Beautiful and vast beach in the East of Lagos. In summer it is largely is organized with umbrellas surcharge but in winter is completely free, also allows the dog to do some nice walks where you can collect shells. Parking no problem, there is more parking at points along the beach. 😃
