Benguela Province

Trip Planner Africa  /  Angola  /  Benguela Province
Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean from the western coast of Angola, Benguela Province bubbles with culture, trade, and beach life. Established by Portuguese settlers in the 16th century, the provincial capital of the same name offers examples of colonial architecture through Benguela's cathedrals, government palace, lighthouses, and fortifications. A large serving of beach-side relaxation is a must on any Benguela Province vacation, with beaches offering clear water and dive sites, in some cases. Once a major center of Portuguese-African trade, fishing remains a thriving industry across the province's harbors. Keeping that in mind, be sure to sample some of the coast's seafood while in the region. When using our Angola trip planner , you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
