Miradouro da Lua, Luanda

4.2
Admire tricolor karst cliffs with sharp pinnacles overlooking the sea at Miradouro da Lua, a roadside viewpoint offering the perfect chance to admire a moon-like limestone landscape. Eroded by wind and rain, these deep gullies and ravines extending for about 1 km (0.6 mi) provide an excellent photo opportunity and draw both amateur and professional shutterbugs. The impression that you're visiting a lunar landscape is particularly strong at sunset and at dawn so time your visit accordingly. Make Miradouro da Lua a centerpiece of your Luanda vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Luanda trip planner.

  • There is a beautiful landscape. The place needs maintenance, which makes us feel unsafe. It is a little bit dirty.  more »
  • 1 hour south of the center of Luanda, on the coastal road, the East Coast gullied and offer a beautiful landscape. He must stop going towards Kwanza Lodge, Cabo Ledo or Quicama

  • They say it’s what Mars would/should look like. If your heading to the beach south of Luanda, although somewhat underwhelming, it’s worth the five to minute stop for the photo opp.  more »

  • Amazing place you should not missed. But there is nothing not even a cafe.
  • Been here before (during my 2 years of working). I really missed this place.
  • This place is beyond beautiful, I enjoyed watching the ocean and then the sun set, while being able to see the moon the whole time being there. I heard that and it seems like a fact that this is one of the only spots in the world where you can see the Sun and Moon at the same time basically all day. Angola really has a treasure on the hands with this one. The meaning of Miradouro da Lua is "Aiming at the Moon"!!!
  • Unmissable while in Luanda! Almost looks like you're in Mars
  • A MUST to see if in Luanda. Do not forget your camera...

Where to stay in Luanda

Luanda holds the title as one of the most expensive cities in the world, so even if you search for budget-friendly accommodations, bear in mind that it will cost a fair amount. Most recommend the neighborhood of Maculusso for three-, four-, and five-star hotels, but you can also see what Murtala Mohammed Avenue near Luanda Bay has to offer. All lodgings in the center make excellent starting points for exploring the rest of Luanda--just remember to confine your sightseeing to the city's safer colonial part.
