You leave the main road N125, about 17 kilometers west of Lagos, and go down the windy road towards the sea and there, hidden away between high hills, you find the fishing village Salema. This village still has fishing boats launched from the beach by a tractor, and there is always a helping hand to handle a boat when needed.
The village square is next door neighbor to the Atlantic sea.
If you go left up the narrow Rua dos Pescadores, you see the old part of the village with the small white washed cottages and cobbled streets. On the right hand of the square you find the newer part of Salema.
The beach in Salema is quite long and has nice golden sand. At both ends the beach is interrupted by the cliffs rising from the sea. In the western end of the beach you can find a big, flat yellow rock with footprints from a dinosaur.
