Does not exist anymore! The drive was going through some bushy roads that was used years ago, but since the resort and beach areas closed down it’s rather disappeared. The ships were transported by the government, it’s only a long beach with locals fishing. Not much to see.

Admittedly I was skeptical when first learning of this site, but upon arrival via a very circuitous path, we were greeted with the wrecks of several dozen ships ranging from a bit of rusty metal emerging from sand, to the sight of oil rigs and multi-level container ships. Be cautious and respectful of the ships. I cannot stress enough the need to also respect the people working to earn their livelihood from fishing. They are gracious hosts, so please respect their efforts. If you have a 3-4 hour period to visit, the photos that you bring home will be amazing.

It is a bit out of the way from Luanda and the road is now under construction. The area access is limited to govt officials and local workers only. Disappointed.

It’s simple to find - plug Cemiterio dos Navios into your Google maps search and you will have the route - it’s all gravel and dirt roads after the turn off from the main road.
Went in a small hatchback - no problems getting there. It may be more difficult in the rainy season.

No security concerns - there were plenty of local people on the beach.

Don’t need to describe the ships graveyard - just that there are plenty of them for kilometers up and down the coast.

You are looking for an isolated and great place in the shore of Luanda, just get in there, getting there is not easy, since you required the assistance from a local person, as well there are gates all over the place which difficult the access, you must get over bushes in order to reach the shoreline, once there is amazing; the force of the ocean carving those scar int eh metal is amazing, if you are lucky enough to climb on top of one of those forgotten ships, you will enjoy

When the civil war started in Angola in 1974, the Portoguese had to flee for their lifes. They stranded the vessels in order for the MPLA to not use the ships against them.

At 30 minutes drive north of Luanda there is a long beach with a dozen large ships abandonned on the sands, since the Angola civil war in the 80`s and 90`s. Difficult to find, better use a local driver. There has been some robbery, because of the loneliness on the beach.

Apart from the bad roads travelled in order to get there, it was worth it to take photos of this unusual part of Angolan history.

Worth the effort to get there. It is amazing to see so many ship wrecks in one place! We climbed onto a few, but be careful when doing so. It could be dangerous.
