Description

Medium quality limestone (some of which was quarried) above a very popular expat hangout. The beach below has some of the best beginner surfing in Africa and thereby attracts a relative crowd on any given weekend. In the afternoon, this shady crag offers a respite from the beach with an incredible view and sea breeze. Routes are short, but worth a visit if you are already going to be down at the beach surfing.

Comment: Stars are relative for the area, not relative for Angola. Just to give an idea of which routes are worth trying if you've only got 30 min of daylight after an epic surfing session.

Getting There

Travel South out of Luanda towards Cabo Ledo or just ask someone how to get to surfer's beach. After passing the entrances for the 'resorts', a dirt road near an active gravel quarry leads off right at the top of a large hill. Follow this down and right towards the surfer's beach. near the bottom of the hill, a dirt road branches left and uphill to an old quarry. Park directly under the routes. By far the easiest access in Angola.
