Ilha do Mussulo, Luanda

3.5
#3 of 6 in Nature in Angola
A topical oasis off Angola's mainland, Ilha do Mussulo is a group of three islands known for their large and quiet beaches. Beach huts and restaurants provide all the amenities you need to enjoy a day--or longer--on the sand and in the water. There is considerable fishing activity on the islands, which means that you'll have plenty of chances to try great seafood while exploring the waterfront.
