Moanda or Muanda is a town and territory lying on the Atlantic Ocean coast of the Democratic Republic of Congo at the mouth of the Congo River. It is situated in Bas-Congo Province, and has a population of 50,000. The town has an airport, IATA Code FZAG, is known for its beaches, and has a few limited tourist facilities, but tourism is incidental to the main economic activities of the town.

The town of Muanda is north-west of the small port of Banana in the mouth of the Congo, and southeast of Point Kipundji. The Moanda Oil Terminal, consisting of various platforms, pipelines and a permanent tanker, lies 10 miles southwest of Point Kipundji.[1] Some 100 km upstream from Muanda, on the north bank of the Congo River, lies the city of Boma, DR Congo's second-largest port. The great width and depth of the Congo River allow seagoing vessels to reach Boma and the largest port, Matadi, despite their distance from the coast.
