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.

  • Astonishing views from a moon like landscape. Just pull aside the main road to Barra do Kwanza for 50 meters and you will see it. Carefully when walking on some hills  more »

  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Nice view of a very interesting geological formation. But there's not a sign or any infrastructure that points to it, we found it almost ny chance.
  • If you have been to Bryce Canyon then this place not really special, for the first time who never seen groto, I think this place is worth to see. In this area, the stop point is really just a point for stop and go. This place is a stop point on the way to Kisama national park.
