“Favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Definitely, my favorite beach in Lagos. Easy access (a lot of stairs though!), lovely landscape with rocks, grottoes, the ocean kin of wavy though, but we could still have a nice swim and splash. Umbrellas are available for rent on the beach, as well as refreshments. It is a small beach, with a sort of intimate feeling about it, although it was packed when we got there (quite late, around 11 AM).
Up the stairs, Camilo Restaurant offers delicious dishes for lunch - seafood being the star of all dishes, as usual, at small prices!

“Camillo Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Just lovely like Don Ana, it is broken into two beaches and is also very rocky so don't dive straight into the water as you are likely to land on a rock. It also has entry by stairs and is a bit of a climb. But it is a must see if you are in Lagos

Gorgeous beach with picturesque views but VERY crowded. Would recommend going earlier in the day to secure a spot to relax.

“Amazing beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

You must go here if your in Lagos. Its a really lovely small beach in a rocky cove that the children love. Water is crystal clear. Its very busy in August as you'd expect and there is a long flight of stairs but its worth the climb.

“Work those calves”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

About 200 wooden steps down to the beach. Space to park at the top of the steps, but be there early (by 10am) if you don't want to struggle for either parking space or space on the spectacular beach.
