“wonderful clean beach with great eateries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

This huge expanse of beach runs from Alvor right round to Lagos. Easily found, good parking opportunities & some wonderful eateries - would have to specially mention Lyndas.

“Oh but the wind!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Very long beach of fine sands and (usually) calm seas. You'll find several parking spots and restaurants along it. Could be perfect for sun bathing and swimming if it wasn't so (frequently) windy.

“Meia Praia a wonderful walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

With its long stretch of beach and its gentle waves this is a perfect beach to walk, swim and sunbath although well built up and not as private with all the condos and hotels along it...Still you can stop and have lunch or a drink at the restaurants that are on the beach..

“Just another big beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

This beach is huge, with white sands and calm water. However, if you want to spend a day on the beach, and need to get something to drink or eat, there are only 2 or 3 bars at one end of the beach, so you have to walk all the way there
