Day Tour from Luanda to Shipwreck Beach and Boat Graveyard

About 35km north of Angola's capital, Luanda, lies a stretch of beach that is an eerie resting place for 20 + derelict and rusting ships.   

Known by locals as Praia da Santiago, or Praia do Sarico, the 2.5km stretch of beach is better known as Shipwreck Beach or Karl Marx Beach, named after the biggest shipwreck on the beach.

  • Off shore and along this stretch of beach are dozens of rusting hulks of tankers, cargo ships, and fishing vessels. There are at least 50 different abandoned boats here. It is impossible to walk here and not have questions running through your mind. How did they get here? What were they used for? Who was on these boats?

    Many legends have been passed along concerning how the large ships mysteriously arrived there, in local folklore, while some truly interesting mercantile and cold war history lies behind their real stories as well. Enjoy the cool playground & ship graveyard!

    Enjoy a day on the beach out of town, eerily novel scenery, a picnic with friends, or some otherworldly photo-memories!
    *Please pack a lunch for the day or ask our guide to arrange something (not included) for your group!
