Meia Praia, Lagos

4.5
#3 of 82 in Outdoors in Lagos
Beach · Nature / Park
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 trip itinerary planning website.
