 Access

From the town of Sumbe, drive 10km south until the road hits a dip and then a rise - at the top turn right and follow the laterite track down the crest of a ridge towards the obvious cliffs to the right (north). This leads to the beach which is called 'Praia de Namoradas' after 2km

 Additional Information

Sumbe itself is the nearest town to this surf spot (330km south of Luanda). The beach front of Sumbe actually has some ordinary beach breaks. However, for the real thing, go 15km south. Here the waves break close to shore on sand bars which appear to have rocks under the thin sand veneer.

Atmosphere

We have only ever surfed this spot once (and it was great), as driving to Sumbe has been too dangerous for the last two years. Hope to go again though soon!
