Get around[edit]


The restored Lobito Lighthouse. The original lighthouse was destroyed during the brutal Angolan Civil War.





In Lobito, like the rest of Angola prices of pretty much everything, except alcohol, are high. Here are some places on the Restinga, the city's famous natural harbour:

  • Alfa Bar - Decent pizzas. Street tables that seem to be almost always full. Some more chairs closer to the beach.
  • Zulu - At the very end of the Restinga.
  • Luna - A bar and lounge that opened in 2014. Very high standards for a bar in the province, nice atmosphere and good food but limited menu.
  • Jango Hotel Restinga - A very nice outside wooden deck and beach chairs.
