Ilha do Mussulo

Despite its name, Ilha do Mussulo (Mussulo Island) is actually a sand bank formed by sedimentation from the Kwanza River. Accessible by boat—and by jeep when the tide is low—Mussulo is where residents of Luanda head when they want a break from the pace of the capital. The expansive white-sand beach is scattered with coconut palms, and the waters of the bay are calm, which makes conditions ideal for any number of water sports; you may want to join the locals who are windsurfing, snorkeling and water-skiing.
