Lovely seaside old-town. Easy to find parking and very pedestrian-friendly. I found it to be much less crowded than some of the other seaside towns, it made for a very nice day exploring.

Lagos center is really scenic with all the different tiles that decorate the walkways. There are lots of shops to explore and of course restaurants. Charming town and not to be missed.

The old town center has a lot of shops, cafes and restaurants, but it's a waste of money to book a tour. A $10 tuk-tuk can do the same thing. Better yet - walk around.
