The kayak tour in Lagos is a must for everyone who is capable to do so. But no worries, it’s not very demanding. You don’t need to be in top shape, only to be able to swim 😉 Ponta da Piedade is known for the most impressive caves, cliffs and amazingly clear water. While kayaking in Lagos, you’ll discover this little paradise on your kayak. Ready?
People often ask me:
What is the best way to discover Ponta da Piedade?
Well, for me there is no doubt! Go kayaking in Lagos!
Here are 5 reasons why I love kayaking in Lagos
1. You can’t get closer to the caves than on a kayak
There are many small caves and tunnels which are only accessible by kayak or SUP.
2. Breath, live and enjoy
There is no better feeling than being healthy, sporty and having fun at the same time. The fresh sea breeze will make you feel alive.
3. Be together
Kayaking in Lagos is done with 2 people each kayak. I have never seen someone not smiling on this tour. It’s great for family fun or even team building.
4. Time to swim, snorkel and rest on a beach
The kayak tour in Lagos takes you over to a lovely beach, where everyone can swim or do some snorkelling. Ponta da Piedade has amazing beaches along the coastline, you will have the chance to rest a bit on a beautiful beach which is inaccessible by land.
5. Unforgettable memories
I have kayaked in Lagos several times now, and I will never forget how much fun it was. I should book a kayak tour in Lagos myself soon 😉
In Lagos, we have two kayak tours:
- one that departs from a beach near Ponta da Piedade, Praia da Batata
- one that departs from the Marina of Lagos on a boat and later you get on the kayak
I recommend to book on time and to bring a waterproof camera or GoPro to capture the moments! Don’t forget to share #seabookings. Enjoy!
