Swakopmund is Namibia’s second largest town/city. It’s in the west of the country, right on the Atlantic coast. It has a wide variety of shops and curios (Peter’s Antiques is well worth a visit!) and great places to eat and enjoy yourself. Good food can be bought at Cape to Cairo, The Lighthouse, Kuckies and many other places – but by far the best for seafood (and location!) is The Tug. This is a restaurant that has been created out of a beached tug-boat! It has to be seen to be believed! The best seats (if booked early enough!) are right up by the window overlooking the ocean – sunsets in this part of the world are to die for!!
If you’ve a bit of time to kill, visit the Moon Landscape and Welwitchia Drive (both a sort journey from Swakop) or even the northern most reaches of the Namib Sand Desert which can be accessed from the road to Walvis Bay! Here you can try your hand at quad-biking in the dunes!! Great!over 7 years ago
