Semi-deserted beaches or resorts and boats in Luanda’s bay - at Mussulo Island, you can choose your holiday paradise!

Southwest of the centre of the Angolan capital, right in front of the Belas municipality, we find an island… that is actually a peninsula. Mussulo is one of Luanda’s biggest attractions: beaches, calm waters, and many pleasant places to spend an unforgettable holiday. Here in this stretch of sand and coconut trees that serves as a natural barrier between Luanda and the Atlantic Ocean you can spend entire days on the northwest coast walking on a large, quiet white sand beach and swimming in warm waters.

On the other side of the Mussulo, you have a view of Luanda and the landscape is more urban. Here you can sleep under a coconut tree in a pleasant resort, relax in a terrace, go on a boat ride or enjoy water sports.  When arriving at Mussulo by boat, you can also enjoy the beauty of the sea and admire the “island's” biodiversity - who knows, you might cross paths with the flamingos that live on the sand flats! 


Transportation to Mussulo is done by boat from Embarcadouro do Mussulo, in Morro Bento, for about 1000 kwanzas.
