A short boatride from town you will find Mussulo, a nice island to spend a day on. There are restaruants and a nice beaches. If you stroll around the island you will also be able to visit some fishingvillages. You can stay for the day or spend a night in one of the small hotells. It was a nice change from the city and if I am ever back in Luanda I will absolutely visit Mussulo again.

Mussulo is a good place to get away from the city. The beach is great, the water is warm and it is relaxing. Some people have quad bikes and boats, so there is plenty to do there. Its great to go with a group of friends or with the family.

There are also locals that live further into the beach. These locals come to the beach on the weekend to sell coconut and other foods as well as bracelets and necklaces made from beads.

Go on a weekend, the bar(s) will be open then. Nice clean beaches and water on the Atlantic side.

I lived in Luanda for 3 years (2008-11) and was always trying to get out of the city. A friend had a place on Mussulo and we looked forward to our weekend breaks on the beach. There are boats going back and forth to Mussulo all day, I would recommend a more expensive one for reliability (you tell them when you embark when you want to go back again in the afternoon, and they will come and fetch you). Also suitable for small children. Take lots of liquids, sunscreen, and remember the electricity is unreliable and likely to go off at some point during the day. Apart from the small hiccups that come with any country having just been through over 30 years of civil war, I can recommend Mussulo to everyone.
