Enjoy a leisurely stroll and admire wildlife at Walvis Bay Waterfront, a long, curving stretch of gray sand. Sandwiched between the Namib Desert sand dunes and the Atlantic Ocean, the bay area offers a variety of water sports and excursions, making it a popular adventure destination. Quad biking, kite-boarding, sandboarding, kayaking, and canoeing are among the activities offered along this restaurant-lined waterfront. Take a boardwalk deep into the sea on a floating wooden jetty from one of the many wharfs, and see pelicans, seals, and flamingos. You can also swim, go fishing, or take a dolphin-spotting boat trip. Public walkways provide good opportunities for jogging, while hotels and bars offer a variety of entertainment year-round.

  • About 30 miles away. From Swakopmund is a marina after it's nice to take a catamaran for about 3 hours to admire sea bream, pelicans, dolphins, oars and if you are lucky even whale. Food on board and lots of adventure. Go there absolutely!!!!
