Meia Praia, Lagos

(4.5/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Meia Praia at the forefront of your travel plans using our Lagos vacation builder.

  • MEIA Praia in Lagos is a place that requires us to go back there every year. By your extensive sandy beach, clear waters. The town right next door invites you to explore it to the end of a day at the beach. Many restaurants, for all portfolios and a mixture of people in local bars. the idea that it is is that the city is always in party. I love and recommend.
