Flights to Luanda

Although witness to civil unrest, in recent years Luanda has basked in the glory of foreign investment and has benefitted from the country’s natural resources – namely, its oil reserves and mineral wealth. And the increase in the number of flights to Luanda is testament to that fact.

In fact, today Luanda is largely unrecognisable from the city it once was. It’s had a complete facelift, and the result is something both beautiful and exotic. It’s created a palpable sense of excitement in the city.

Most visitors will agree that Luanda’s best days are still to come, with much-needed funds going into construction and building restoration projects. Yet for all that, the history of Luanda is what gives it its character today. It’s almost 500 years since the city was first populated by the Portuguese, and apart from a brief era of Dutch rule, they ran the city until 1975.

Known back then as São Paulo da Assunção de Loanda, these influences are still visible today in the city’s foods, forts, museums and culture.

Luanda boasts beautiful natural beaches. And now a growing marina and even a beach club scene – Tamariz Beach Club is one of the most popular – have made this a popular spot for sun-seekers from beyond the borders.

What to do in Luanda

Visit Fortaleza de São Miguel

In recent years, Luanda’s skyline has been transformed thanks to all the new skyscrapers. Yet it’s the ancient Fortaleza de São Miguel (Fortress of São Miguel) that carries the real significance. This 16th century fort, which is perched on a hill at the centre of the Luanda Bay basin, played an important role in the slave trade. Today it is home to the Museum of the Armed Forces.

Explore Shipwreck Beach

One of the most curious sites on this side of Africa is called Shipwreck Beach (Praia do Sarico), or even Karl Marx Beach after one of its most famous wrecks. The mysterious stretch of sand is home to around 20 rusting ships, tankers and fishing vessels. This boat graveyard is 90 minutes north of the city, and as an experience you’ll struggle to find anything as surreal.

Hop on a boat to Mussulo

If you’re keen to escape the bustle of the city, Luanda offers the perfect getaway. Under an hour from the city centre you can find yourself on Mussulo, a large peninsula – accessed by boat to give the feel of an island – running parallel with the Estrada Nacional 100. It’s beautiful beaches and hut-style restaurants offer a relaxing atmosphere and you can start your exploration at SSULO Club Resort Hotel.

Where to eat in Luanda

Cais De Quatro (International)

You can observe the frenetic pace of the city across the bay as you tuck into any one of the 100-plus dishes on the menu. The vast selection might suggest a lack of quality, but from the pizza to the sushi, the food more than delivers.

Restaurante Shogun (Japanese)

Expertly prepared teppanyaki, wonderful cooking displays, brilliant sea views, and smells and sounds to rival any restaurant make Shogun one of the best places to eat in the city. The beachfront venue is a major plus, but you’ll find your eyes drawn to the live cooking displays.

Switch Supper Club (International)

This is one of the newest and most fashionable restaurants in the city, and the queue for a table highlights that. Be sure to book ahead and enjoy a night out with dinner and dancing – the inspiration is drawn from a traditional supper club.
