Long stripe of golden sand,clear water,good facilities,many sun loungers to rent,good free parking,easy to reach. It was a pleasure in the morning to soak up the sun,strolling up and down on the beach to collect shels,but,in the afternoon the wind begun to blow,rising around all the sand,an unpleasant experience. Try to go there only on calm day.

Long gently slopping fine sand beach with sun beds if you prefer. Some water sports on hire but mainly lots and lots of space. There are a number of car parks off the main coast road and beware there is a main railway line to cross. Public toilets can be found at Cafe Gaitvota Bianca.

Perfect days on the beach, watch the world go by, swim in the glorious sea and bury your feet in the sand and all is well in the world. Fabulous

LIKED - Absolutely huge beach - 4 km long and loads of activities all the way along. Lots of eateries along there too. The end furthest from Lagos is naked friendly. DISLIKED - the signs to the beach point you to the Lagos end only.

This beach is around 6 kilometres long and is superb. Very clean (mostly), with very good sand. Only problem is the disrespect the locals show for it. At every entrance to the beach there are signs saying "no dogs" yet so many local people walk their dog on the beach and take their dog(s) with them when sunbathing. It is... More
