We went at the sunset timing and it was perfect to relax without the crowd. We walk from one side to another by the ocean and it was beautiful and very relaxing. Good place for pictures too.

Perfect beach for swim, playing in waves, frisbee. So close to our hotel we barely got to use our 2 swimming pools, just felt wrong with this beach so close.

First time we’ve visited this beach and we weren’t disappointed! Really fine sand and waves are as good as other beaches around Lagos. Lounger hire prices are the same as other beaches. Has a nice restaurant and snack bar too.
