Meia Praia, Lagos

4.5
#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.

  • Beach clean with cold water, and some restaurants close by. Rent chairs and umbrellas is expensive, so better plan and lead their own, as well as a snack.

  • Very nice beach right in front of the gates of Lagos. Spacious and at the rear end to the mouth of the river and right empty. Best area at the last roundabout at the little shack of "Emotions of paradise", led by a totally cute French couple, the shadow & concerns various snacks and drinks offer.
