Lagos: Catamaran and Meia Praia

This was sadly our final day in Lagos.

Before heading into town, we stopped by Bora Cafe for a quick bite. It had good food – muesli and croissants – at a decent price.

Afterwards, we headed into town for one last walk around before boarding a catamaran with Discovery tours.
Highly recommended by our AirBnB host, we took the tour and we’re not disappointed!
Our host, Pedro, was very funny and kept us laughing the whole way as we passed scenic points around Lagos, until we finally stopped midway for lunch and a some time in the ocean!
The voyage was the highlight of our Lagos tour!
Since we had time to kill and we were close to the waterfront, we decided to hit one more beach that required more walking than we first anticipated: Meia Praia.
This is where we chose to pay for a few lounge chairs and an umbrella, so we could soak up the sun without fully being exposed to it. After a few hours, we started our journey back to relax, get dressed and head out for our last night in town.
What we didn’t plan on was not being able to find a restaurant for dinner! We walked the streets of Lagos looking for restaurants that were recommended, but they were either packed (a crazy tourist day!) or had outside seating only (and it was very cold and windy outside … Lagos can be very hot in the day, but at night it can cool down significantly and become very windy).
We finally ended up at a below average restaurant called Os Arcos. It was quite pricey for the quality of the food (we had the Portuguese steak and beef bolognese – both which were serviceable). We cut our losses due to the hunger in our bellies!
Finally we stopped off for a few treats at a local shop and went home to pack!
