I spent a week here in late November for golf and relaxation, and with great weather, great food and friends it was a lovely experience.

Smallish, reasonably clean beach flanked both ends by rocks. The big rock at the eastern end is painterly, composed of different strata - worth seeing at sunset, when it begins to glow. Enjoy.

Lagos is nearby and is steeped in history as the origins of the slave trade in Europe. There are boat trips from there too. Sayers is a short drive away and is historically the end of the known world!

Sorry I can't answer your query but might I suggest you speak with the lifeguards or watersport people whilst you are there. Any of the locals will do all they can to accommodate the tourists so please ask around.
