The promenades, palm trees, beautiful gardens remind of a European seaside resort. Magnificent buildings dating back to the turn of the century, give the city its charm. The aquarium, the museum and the open wood market in the city are worth a visit. A few kilometers further away the harbour town Walvis Bay with its lagoon, the seal colony at Cape Cross and the Welwitschia Mirabillis – an endemic ancient plant – in the Namib Desert are some of the tourist attractions in the area. For the active holidaymaker, quadbikes, sandboarding, boat rides, fishing trips, kayaking and even parachuting are some of the offered highlights.
Namibia’s premier holiday resort on the west coast resembles a small village nestling between the desert and the sea.
Plenty of hotels, pensions, excellent restaurants and shops cater for the comfort of the visitor.
