With the cove beaches to the west of Lagos getting more press, Meia Praia maybe gets overlooked. But I love a long beach where besides swimming, I can take a long walk. And you can walk something like 9 kilometers round trip on this beach! You can take a short shuttle boat across the river or do a 15 minute... More

Stunningly long wide beach,(about 4km), with a few beach side bars for snacks/meals and drinks and toilet facility. Plenty of sunbeds costing about 10 euros for the day. So much room that it doesn't get crowded and if you fancy it, a long quiet walk to the estuary end.

Meia Praia is a huge beach in comparison to the smaller beaches we frequented during our time in Lagos. This meant that it was more peaceful than some of the smaller beaches as people were more spread out along the coast.

Several beach bar / restaurants, plenty of free parking ( with the same exception of the first car park along ) sunbeds and shades available. So big it's never too crowded even in mid summer, absolutely stunning in winter time, so... More
