Meia Praia, Lagos

4.5
#3 of 90 in Outdoors in Lagos
Soak up the sun and splash around in the Atlantic at Meia Praia, a long, wide, golden sand beach at the edge of an estuary. Hailed as a Blue Flag beach for impeccable cleanliness, the 4.5 km (2.8 mi) seafront features summer water sports, year-round surfing and body boarding, and nature walks. To cool off or regain strength after a good swim, choose from among a selection of bars and restaurants along the coast offering fresh, local fish. Due to its length and width, this beach somehow never seems too crowded, even during peak season.

  • Every year there. The lounge bed is highly recommended. We love this beach. Wideness and tranquility. Beautiful gastronomy.

  • Kilometers of sand. Not many people. Great entrance to the clearest sea. Dunes. Big beautiful shells. Approaches to the beach from the side of the road are not everywhere, it is better to see them in advance on the map. Walking from one end to the other will take hours 2 hours. A good option for jogging.
