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.

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.. :)

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
