Baia dos Tigres is the largest island of Angola. It is situated in the Namibe Province. Its area is 98 km².

It once had a small but well established fishing village named Tigres. Aided by rising sea levels, the ocean broke through the isthmus of the peninsula in 1962 & the water line was severed. Tigres became an Island overnight with no water supply, Tigres and the pump station at the Cunene river mouth were abandoned, and have become ghost towns slowly being reclaimed by the desert.
