Meia Praia, Lagos

4.5
#3 of 91 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.
