“Series of amazing views”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Actually there are more than one place in Lagos, very close reflecting the beauty of the nature especially the impact of the water erosion to generate such beautiful view. Unfortunately there was high waves, so I could not get boat trip, however, at least I could be at the close hills. An amazing view of the coast.

“Beautiful beach”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

We spent an afternoon relaxing on Camilo beach and swimming in the Atlantic. The beach was busy for a Tuesday afternoon, but not over crowded. The water was nice and calm for swimming and the sand was soft. The view of the beach from the top of the stairs is worth soaking in for a few minutes as well. Absolutely beautiful.

“All the beaches in Lagos are magical”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Spent 3 weeks visiting Spain and then Portugal. The best time was the 5 days spent in Lagos. My friend and I rented a little old lady's apartment with balcony, for only $30E/nt. We went to the fish market daily for our dinner. Went to a bar/restaurant in the square for internet and took a boat trip around all the amazing Lagos beaches, and walked along the cliff's edge.

And if Lagos was not magical enough, If you are fortunate to have a car, or rent one for the day; take a drive up to Lisbon. Halfway between Lagos and Lisbon, there is a cape/cliff called, Cabo Sardeo which was magnificent. We ate our packed lunch there and watched the fishermen down below. When they came up the cliff for lunch, we saw the path on the right side, and ventured down. Stunning!

Then a bit further drive up the coast, we also stopped at a 10km beach called Sines. We had a snack in the restaurant and then headed for the beach. Even though it was off season we couldn't help but bodysurf the massive waves. Both of these were the highlight of our 3 week trip.

“Great location, fresh fish, okay service”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

The title says it all really. Not far from Casade Resort and the shuttle will drop you off for free. Worth a visit for the views alone. Forgot our drink order and the food was okay.

“One of the most special cliff beaches in Lagos...”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Advice of a local... if visiting in early June or late September you'll be having it entirely for yourself, so be happy!...Between these months is the peak season so if you don't like crowds and want to experience these beach...go early around 7ish am and leave by 10am, after that time is just a bunch of people in the sand, in the water, well.
if deciding to wake up earlier make sure you sit in its sand with a wee snack about 6ish and observe the sun coming up from there.
Excellent for snorkeling, and you will see that all tourists know that :) (count the googles)...however its really nice so ignore that, detach yourself from the crowds of googles heading out of the shore and do it with medium to high tide, low tides get you all scratched :).
In between going down and up to Camilo remember there are some healthy steps that separates you both. Walk & Hike, stay operational, stay healthy!! Aproveita!
