Lagos is an excellent destination for a family holiday. The city boasts a wide selection of family friendly hotels, while restaurants, attractions and activities are welcoming of children. Lagos is more relaxed than other larger resorts, such as Albufeira or Praia da Rocha, and is very safe and tends to be less hectic during the evening. The beaches of Lagos are clean and there are sheltered beaches for swimming or spalshing in, which during the summer, are supervised by lifeguards. Lagos Zoo is great excursions for younger children, and children of all ages will enjoy the dolphin watching boat trips that depart from the harbour.
