In Luanda there is a place you should not miss: the beach of Chicala in an island just at the end of the town, called La Ilha. It is united to Luanda by a kind of isthmus.
Around there are many kiosks selling sardines on the grill, so delicious! Buy also a Portuguese beer Sagres to accompany the sardines. Everything is very cheap, just a few kwanzas.
Dominating the isthmus there is a fortress constructed by the Portuguese in the XVII century that you can visit. It is called Sao Miguel and the entrance is free. Today is a military casern.
In the other side of the Ilha there are several hotels, apartments, and a small village more pleasant and less dangerous than Luanda. That area is called Bairro da Ilha do Cabo.
