“Beautful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2014 NEW

This is a lovely beach but I recommend arriving early because the beach is small and soon fills up - also the tide comes in around 1pm making it even more crowded!
Definitely a lovely spot for some photos

“Worth the walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2014 NEW

It is so tempting when arriving at the coast to stop at the fist shealtered beach but keep walking! The beach is just the best, most beautiful beach ever. Take some snacks and water so you don't have to leave as although there is a small shack on the beach it had run out of water and didn't have any food. Yum, great ice cream shop at the top of the walkway on your way home

“A stunning find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2014

We discovered Camilo beach by hiring bicycles from Lagos town center and heading out down the coast line. We got there at about 1pm and the beach was already really busy!

We're not ones to mind a crowd and it was a great mix of young adults, families and oldies, all enjoying the amazing scenery, cool blue waters, and scorching sunshine.

If you're down this end of the country, it's a must visit!

“Beautiful, but crowded in August”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2014

Very beautiful beach worth a visit if you are in Lagos. Prettier than D. Ana beach, but gets as crowded in August. So it's better to come early, if you want to have a nice place. Keep in mind that the beach becomes much smaller at high tide and staying too close to the rock is dangerous. The stairs are not that bad - actually there are even a couple of benches if you need to catch your breath. The toilets are at the top though.

“Best beach in Lagos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2014

The beach was our favourite in Lagos as it's gorgeous and it has two smaller inlets, feeling much more private and quiet than other beaches in the area, such as Dona Ana.
Since it becomes quite crowded after 11AM, it is better to go earlier and grab a good spot by the water.
