Take a ferry to the island for a relaxing day on the beach and a good meal at one of the restaurants. Well worth a visit. Accommodation available if you want to spend a night.

The overwhelming construction of luxury houses that are non environmentally friendly, plus the sectioning of huge lots into private properties has taken away from this paradise its original form and natural beauty.
Today, this is equivalent to the normal Ilha de Luanda, where nature is not easily found.
Not to mention the exageration of boats, skys, jets, etc that keep the noise always at a polluted level and the water with a suspicious oily look and feel!

Running along the ocean beach is a fantastic escape from Luanda. Get dropped off where the spit meets the mainland (south of Benfica) and run as far as you want. When you are tired head over to the mainland side and flag down a boat to Embarcado to meet your driver.

It's not an island because it's connect to the mainland but it really seems like one. On one side you have a desert perfect beach, with golden soft sand, beautiful sea with waves that you can enjoy as they are not big enough to scare anyone. On the opposite side you'll find a lots of harbors, private or public, houses, restaurants by the sea. The beach on this side is totally different, smaller considering the sand area from the trees to the sea, busy with people, boats...
We went there and spend a lovely sunday, my husband and I with some friends. I'll post some photos that can describe the spot far much better than I can.
