Swakopmund - Adventure Anyone?
This quaint little seaside town on Namibia’s western coast retains a strong German flavour, from the picturesque buildings right down to the characteristic German restaurants and pubs. Fresh fish, lobster and Swakopmund oysters are classic Namibian fare.
This town is traditionally a holiday spot for locals and foreigners alike, with many opportunities for adventure sports, from sandboarding and quad biking to boat excursions to see the dolphins and seals. Swakopmund is an ideal place to relax after a few days in the desert; wash off the sand and sample some of the finely-brewed local beer.
