Skeleton Coast - Shipwrecks and Sand Dunes
Namibia's ghostly Skeleton Coast is evocative, atmospheric and truly unforgettable. Situated on the remote western coastline, it is named after the skeletal shipwrecks caused by rocks offshore in the thick desert fog. The rusted ship remains are often seen surrounded by swirling mists and make for moody and dramatic visuals. Ships can be found as far as 50 m (165 feet) inland, as a result of the desert creeping into the sea and reclaiming the land.
