Meia Praia is the largest beach in Lagos, stretching easterly from the Lagos Marina area over 4km towards the Odiaxere river mouth and the Alvor Lagoon. The blue flag beach is bordered by wide grassy sand banks that open onto quiet roads, leading to various residential areas. This area behind the beach is also referred to as Meia Praia
, and is a popular place for tourist developments, holiday apartments and condominiums. Just away from the frontline of the beach you will find larger detached villas, many in an elevated position, some with stunning views across the beach and Lagos bay.
Although Meia Praia is a popular holiday destination it maintains a low-key atmosphere with small beach huts and restaurants.
Just 3km East along the Meia Praia beach is the Palmares Golf Club
in a prime position overlooking the ocean.
