One of the beautiful places to visit in Lagos. You can start your walk on the promenade from there and continue to the Fort, Forte da Ponta da Bandeira. It is a great walk and has to be repeated while you are in Lagos. The harbour offers great selection of restraints and coffee shops. You can just sit and relax to enjoy the view and the peaceful atmosphere. There are plenty of offers for excursions. The bridge is a good place for excellent photos. It is also interesting that on the one side of the marina is the bus station and on the other side nearby is the train station. You may also want to just sit on one of the benches of the promenade and have a rest with a great view.
