8 Best beaches in Namibia

Ultimate guide (March 2018)
Namibia, Swakopmund beach, breakwater
Swakopmund is a popular beach resort town in the middle of Atlantic coast, Namibia. It features the old German buildings, thus attracting many tourists from Germany. There are always strong waves - except for a single spot near the breakwater. In addition the water is always cold. So Swakopmund is not the perfect place for a beach holiday. However, still there's nothing better in Namibia to relax after a hard safari. / read more » /

Namibia, Langstrand beach
Langstrand is a small seaside village located in the half way between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay - two major coastal towns of Namibia. Despite its beach status, this is more like a place for relaxation and walking along the sea. The problem is that (like elsewhere in Namibia) the water is always cold with strong waves. / read more » /

Namibia, Henties Bay beach
Henties Bay is a resort town on the north coast of Namibia. Most buildings are located on high dunes with good view to the sea. The only problem is that, it is hard to climb up on the way back from the beach. The main local attraction is fishing. This resort is also remarkable, as a place where you can drive to the beach by car. To be true, high metal columns will stop your car at some distance from the water edge. / read more » /

Namibia, Cape Cross beach, boardwalk
Cape Cross is a beach on the Atlantic coast of Namibia, known for its huge colony of seals (Cape Cross Seal Reserve). The smell is terrible everywhere, but the view is worth to stay here for a while. There is a good boardwalk over the animals. You may also swim in the ocean a little further away, but Namibia may offer much more comfortable places for a beach holiday. / read more » /

Namibia, Walvis Bay, Independence Beach
Walvis Bay is a major port in Namibia. There is nothing to do in town except for sitting in restaurants (by the way, these are quite good). Independence Beach - in the northeast suburbs - is the only one to speak of. While the western suburbs may offer flamingos and pelicans watching, as well as fishing (it is best to take a boat tour). Near the city, there is also Dune 7 being one of the highest in the region, though not the highest in the country. / read more » /

Namibia, Torra Bay beach
Torra Bay is a secluded beach in Namibia. It is uncomfortable, but great to feel beautiful wildness of Atlantic. You can swim here, but strong waves and cold water are not great for such an activity. In fact, Torra Bay is just a suitable spot for a night stopover on the way along Skeleton Coast. / read more » /

Namibia, Luderitz beach
Luderitz is a secondary port on the southern coast of Namibia. City beaches are not good for swimming. A little to the north, there is also wild Agate Beach - polluted and ugly, but with occasional flamingos. The main tourist attractions are the old German houses and the opportunity to see the colony of penguins near the town. / read more » /

Namibia, Terrace Bay beach
Terrace Bay is a remote beach in the heart of Skeleton Coast, Namibia. The place is boring, and obviously not worth a drive. It is hard to swim here. However, unlike the southern beaches, the bottom is not sandy, but pebbly. If you prefer it. / read more » /
