Beautiful Scenery of Camilo Beach, Lagos

Posted by on Jan 19, 2014 in Nature | Comments Off on Beautiful Scenery of Camilo Beach, Lagos

Camilo beach in Lagos (‘Praia do Camilo’) is simply beautiful! Water a bit cold but the rock formation is fantastic, really unspoiled natural beauty. The view over the beach from the top is breathtaking and if you can make it down all the steps you will not be disappointed! Picturesque cliffs embrace the little beach and the rock formations are magnificent. It is a wonderfully sheltered bay for swimming and is an ideal choice of beach for a breezy day.

Beautiful Tourist Destination, Virgin Gorda

Posted by on Dec 14, 2013 in Nature | Comments Off on Beautiful Tourist Destination, Virgin Gorda

As the third largest island in the British Virgin Islands, Virgin Gorda is a popular tourist destination. It was christened “The Fat Virgin” by Christopher Columbus, who felt that the island’s profile resembled an overweight lady lying on her side.

The Baths, which are located in the southern portion of the island, are a large part of the reason that Virgin Gorda is such a popular tourist destination. The huge boulders that are piled on the beach are signs of the island’s volcanic history. However, the real attraction is the scenic natural grottos and exotic pools.
