Ilha de Mussulo is a nice place to visit for the day, especially on weekends, if you like crowds. But be prepared to spend a bundle on food and drinks (they don't allow you to bring your own).

Never know that Luanda, Angola have beautiful beach. If only not much of a restriction imposed, i believe the place can be as popular as Bali here. The only setback is that there isn't any halal establishment to cater to Muslims traveller.

The stated price 1500 kwanzas is for taxi just from Airport to boat docking area. But the boat charging price was 2000 kwanzas. Not expensive in relation to Angolan Prices.
