This beach is lovely. Long stretch of sandy beach which never gets that busy considering it's location and how pretty it is. There is a nice breeze which cools you down in the heat. The sea is cold and refreshing - just want you need after sunbathing in the hot weather. I returned here a few times on my trip.... More

As with any beach in a popular area there are parts of the beach that get busy, however, this beautiful white sandy breach is so long that you can always find yourself a quiet spot away from everyone. There are several life guarded areas but in general the sea is very calm and not a problem for families. Beware -... More

Beautiful and pretty huge beach. Can be quite crowded on the peak times (Jul-Aug especially) and there is nicer and quieter beaches in Lagos and especially outside it. But it's not the beaches fault it's so crowded.. :)

Lovely golden sand for miles so lots of space only problem being the wind tended to get up in the afternoon and give you a bit of a sandblasting so best to go in the morning, oh and of course you've got to be pretty tough to swim in the sea as it's the Atlantic ocean and very cold! Nice... More

Travelling with my family this was the best beach we visited in Lagos. It might not be stricking as Do Camilo or Dona Ana, but it is big, the sand is finer and there a lot of space for the little ones to run around.

A lovely large beach with lots of parking. A flat beach and unlike some Lagos beaches has a calm sea area that is suitable for small children. Good beach bars here too especially Linda's.

This is a nice beach but it's a bit of hike to get there from where we were located and it can be very windy. The sun loungers cost us €10 per shade which seemed very steep

Pure white sand on a huge stretch of beach. A bit of a walk to get there but it is worth it. Husband said sea was freezing so i didn't venture in! Beach is clean but only has a few sunbeds, however ther was plenty of choice as many locals take their own. Great value for money 10 euros for... More
