Nice and close to Lagos and it is quite a good beach, nice and sandy, with two bars on the beach. However, you can find more beautiful beaches if you are willing to drive a bit more.

Wide sandy quiet beach. This is our favorite beach in Lagos (we tested several and sticked to this one in the end). You can get to this beach either by bus (blue line) or walking. If you come from the other side of Lagos (across the river) you can take a boat (0,6€/pax) to cross the river and get next... More

It would be the perfect beach if it was not for the wind which is present almost everyday. The water is cold, but that is how I like it. The beach is very long and you always find a spot without many people.

The beach was a little too windy for our taste, but if you are into water sports, this is the place to go and rent jet skis and related activities!

My girlfriend and I decided to spend a relaxing day at this Meia-Praia and it was amazing. There were only a few old couples who were maybe 40/50mts away from us but that was it. The beach was very clean and the water wasn't cold at all. Small tip: the beach is 5Kms long so the further you go from... More

Meia Praia is a beautiful long sand beach in Lagos. If you want people, restaurants and different water activites you have that and if you walk for a bit it's very quiet. Not to big wawes and good for a swim if you don't mind the cold water.

This was such an easily accessed, clean, and lovely beach! There were all kinds of folks - from little babies to grannies - all rocking life in the sun. We explored a few of the other beaches in and near Lagos, but kept going to Meia Praia.
