“Beautiful beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

Visited in March so no snorkelling this time, but such a beautiful beach -Honeycomb coloured cliffs and stacks with lovely sandy beach, easy to get to and free parking. Worth a visit anytime of year.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

A bit chilly for swimming in March, but a gorgeous beach surrounded by spectacular cliffs. It is amazingly picturesque.

“Almost perfect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

If it wasn't for the fact that the beach is very smal and that the sea has a rocky bottom, this beach would be close to perfect. Parking and snack-bar available (snack bar only opens during summer period) and the views are great.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

We stayed for a week at the Dona Ana Garden, a small hotel almost right across the street from this beach, and besides its own charms, one of the things we liked about the hotel was being able to easily visit Dona Ana Beach. Since we visited in November, swimming wasn't on our agenda but we enjoyed just visiting this beach for the views, and a few minutes of relaxation and serenity every day. One day, however, was far from serene - a storm system brought huge swell and crashing waves; that was quite a sight to see!

“What a view!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Although a small beach, it has an amazing view from the observation area and from the surrounding cliffs... I was lucky enough to be able to wake up to this wonderful view daily, seeing the rock formations are a must see when in Lagos
