Ship's Cemetery (Graveyard), Luanda

#3 of 10 in Historic Sites in Angola
See a series of stranded, rusty ships and boats of all sizes scattered along the beach at Ship's Cemetery (Graveyard). Unless you take a 4x4 vehicle and hire a local to help you, accessing this peculiar site can get quite challenging and unpredictable. Once you reach the inhospitable shores, have your camera at the ready to take photographs and videos of this haunting landscape. Due to reports of assaults, remember to travel in groups, preferably with two vehicles, and always wear shoes since ship debris may cut you. You won't find any places to eat or drink, so bring food and water with you.

  • A secluded beach, full of shipwrecks and decadents. It is possible to bathe sea and approach some remains of boat even without entering the water. The only unpleasant thing was a guard of a nearby military post who came to bother and say he couldn't take pictures, but my guide managed to get rid of him just by talking, and of course I disobeyed and took pictures afterwards, how not to photograph this attraction so strange and picturesque outdoors?
