Just a small beach outside of Lagos, reached by 18 flights of 11 steps. Remember you have to come back up! Some interesting grottoes and rock formations. We had a nice visit... read more

Just a small beach outside of Lagos, reached by 18 flights of 11 steps. Remember you have to come back up! Some interesting grottoes and rock formations. We had a nice visit with only a half dozen people or so.

Great beach - if a bit awkward to get to, but worth the visit. Great scenery and a must on your Lagos sight seeing travels.

its a long way down and an even longer way back up, but if you have the energy you can enjoy this small secluded beach if you avoid the busy summer months

Lovely little beach that is very quiet out of season. Great cliff-top walks, and a super fish restaurant up above the beach, with fantastic views across Lagos, Meia Praia Beach, and out to sea

Great beach to walk to from Lagos. Very quiet in February and at high tide very little beach remains.

This is, without saying, one of the most beautiful beaches in the whole world. Pristine sand, clean, blue water, lovely rock formations... We were sitting for hours alone on the beach in awe of the beauty. But I bet that during the winter it gets really crowded.

Nestled between cliffs, Camilo Beach is really 2 beaches connected by a tunnel through the rock. Camilo Beach is accessed by a staircase with 200 steps. Before starting the descent enjoy the scenery: it’s stunning! Very close and with access from the same road, lays the Ponta da Piedade, an impressive rock formation, with cut and caves dug by the...

If you don't mind going up and down alot of steps and your knees can handle it, this place is well worth a visit. The views are amazing! We did the steps with our 3 year old and managed just fine. No one was on the beach so he had all of the sand to himself which he loved. Very... More

Camilo Beach is one of the best beeches in Lagos, in fact it is really 2 beaches connected by a small tunnel. Although it is not a very large, there are a few caves that you can enter (at low tide), the down side is that it is not very friendly if a) you are not very fit, or b)... More
