 Access

Tricky.
Drive 55km south of Luanda passing the turn-off to the shipwreck and Buraco, continue past Palmeirinhas until you come to the local beauty spot of Miradouro da Lua - a cliff top parking overlooking the coastal plain.From here continue 1.5km south and take the first less-than-obvious track on your right. This leads 2km along and down a dry river bed, to a fishing village. The spot is the obvious headland.The track requires a 4x4, and is virtually impassable in times of rain.

 Additional Information

Park in the village, closer beach access is no longer possible due to the rains.Either paddle directly into the waves and around to the right, or walk under the cliffs and go in off the hidden beach behind the point, and let the current take you to the take-off point. Beware falling cliffs, big sections have been seen to come down.

Atmosphere

The water is usually murky and you are not far from the Kwanza river mouth. However, no shark sightings, and the fishermen confirm that this is not a problem. Lots of rays, often jumoing out of the water around us.

General

This wave can be a really fun day out. Its the reliable wave when not much else is working, especially as it is protected somewhat from the winds that affect most other waves in this area.

no title - how is the rest of the angolan coast, is there more good spots, and is it dangerous to go exploring the coast line

About the Miradouro. - There are no more wave at The Miradouro as the sand banks have moved.During the summer, the cliff has collapsed changing all the currents and the configuration of the beach.With the new season coming, we hope to get our favourite and more accessible spot back.
