Holiday in Lagos and you'll discover a town proud of its history, packed with great restaurants, and encircled by sandy coves. The great Portuguese seafarers set off from here to discover the coast of West Africa in the 14th century, but when you consider the charms of this lovely, walled town, it's a wonder they ever left! You'll feel their legacy running through the cobbled streets, with statues dotted here and there, and names of streets and squares commemorating their bravery.
Nowadays this is a town where kite shops nestle next to tanks of live lobster outside the restaurants, and local artists show their work alongside beach gear and postcards. You could spend hours pottering around the picturesque lanes, pausing for a beer or a coffee in sun dappled squares. Whether you're on a cheap holiday to Lagos, or something more indulgent, you'll find a restaurant to suit your budget, for this town is teeming with choices for gourmets.
Summer holidays in Lagos aren't short of a beach or two either. For tiny coves and larger stretches of rock studded sand are tucked into the coastline around the old city. Just across the river, Meia Praia offers a long run of sandy beach nicely sheltered from the north breeze. There's plenty of sightseeing for history buffs too, from the ancient slave market to the 17th century moated fortress overlooking the harbour.
