This is a top beach for a reason, its rock formations are all around the beach. Its gorgeous. But it is the most populated of the beaches we visited while in Lagos.

I was disapointed by this beach that is quite iconic. There was a lot of people and it was a very long walk from the city centre.

The sea itself was lovely - not too cold and some days the waves here were great. There are a couple of places at the top of... More

This is a lovely beach right in town but still very beautiful. It can be hard to find parking. There's a restaurant there, caves, and tidal pools during low tide. And the donut man comes by selling creme-filled donuts!

The water had an excellent temperature, unlike other years; the sand and water could be cleaner, with many broken clam shells in the sand and sediments in the water. The worst of it was the number of people, with barely a space to spread your towel. Not recommended in August, but in early September it will be fine. Beautiful beach.

This beach was within a walking distance of our hotel, so we decided to go there. We walked until we found a space (ideal times to go are in the morning) When we came back there were people crowding the stairs. Lovely scenic views, but very busy.

We spent the day at Praia Dona Ana, wanting to check out a different beach than Maia Praia. The rock formations are beautiful, and walking up to the cliffs, the views are fantastic. The beach is nice, but we preferred Maia Praia. It's a little crowded and the sand is a little rougher at Dona Ana. But it's definitely worth... More
