Miradouro da Lua, Luanda

4.1
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.

  • The beauty that the place has is to keep the eyes iphitos for a long time, only contemplating the sculpture naturally made based on erosion. Simply Gorgeous

  • If you are going to Kisama (or some other place south) from Luanda this is a perfect and mandatory stopping point. There is a parking place and the view is the only reason why you should stop there. The rocks all around and below are just moon-like landscape, and the ocean closing the view make it all stunning and awesome. Stop, have a look, enjoy. It's worthwhile.
  • Amazing landscape due to erosion. Contrasting colors. Better at sunset or sunrise
  • Breathtaking views of hills and Atlantic ocean. A must see place in Luanda, Angola. The landscape is amazing it's about 30 minutes drive from Luanda city. If you go to the river Kwanja from the Luanda city you will find it on your way.
  • It is a must stop if you are driving in the road, it's a different coastal landscape, colors change according to the day light.
  • Lovely place and no cost to visit. Good for unique photography. Some rubbish around, but is not to much eye disturbing. Car parking available, but no guards around. You are just alone with your own minds. Worth it to visit!
