Get out and enjoy yourself
Swakopmund is Namibia’s main seaside resort that appears like a beautiful, welcoming oasis. One thing you will not find yourself is bored! With a village packed with restaurants, coffee shops, antiques and shops and a heap of outdoor activities, the charm of this beautiful town will leave you coming back for more. Don’t be surprised if Swakop creeps into your heart, like no other place.
Attractions like surfing, kite surfing, fishing and adventure sports are on offer at every turn. If you are a keen angler, you’d be happy to know that you can take your 4x4 straight to the beach and choose your spot for the day. So throw in the rods, bait and the whole FAMDAMILY for a day on the beach. The best fishing spots are on the road to Walvis Bay and also en-route to Henties Bay up north. Or better yet, just ask a local where the fish are biting and they’ll be sure to tell you where, what bait to use and at what time of the day too. Remember to take out an angling permit from the Ministry of Fishing and Marine resources (Fisheries research and information centre) Tel: +264(0)410 1000.
Enjoy a day at the beach where wide–open,clean white sands await you. Or spend the day at the well-known Mole Basin with its protected beach area. There is also a kiddies’ swimming-pool and playground and two restaurants. The kids will have heaps of fun at the Mole.
Surfers and kite surfers will be happy to know that Swakopmund has not left you out. To be honest, Walvis Bay is probably one of the best spots for the pro’s kite surfing and surfing in Swakop is known to be legendary! So if you are into braving the wind and the waves you won’t be disappointed. Give the guys at Element Riders a shout – they’d be happy to help from lessons to kit!
Looking for something a little less strenuous? How about a dolphin and seal sight-seeing trip to Pelican Point? Ocean Adventures will even throw in some champagne and oysters.
Adrenaline junkies flock to Swakopmund, simply because there is so much adventure waiting. If you are not surfing the waves another popular rush is surfing the dunes. Sandboarding, quad biking, paintballing, you name it… who thought you would even want to play in the sand?
Ahhh, you have to take a scenic flight to take in the view of the contrasting Namib Desert and Atlantic Ocean. Or, tick off your bucket list and Skydive Swakop. Seeing the large swells of the cold southern Atlantic Ocean crashing into the delicate-looking dunes of the world’s oldest desert is compelling from wherever you are standing. Seeing it while falling towards earth at 220km/h is mind-blowing.
Eating out and of course, the beer
Swakop is steeped in German history as it became the main port for imports and exports between Germany and South-West Africa. The connection with Germany has remained strong, and you will be spoilt with some of the best German cuisine this side of Munchen and of course, where there’s Bratwurst, there’s BEER. Namibia is a hot country (what, you didn’t notice?), so there is always a supply of cold lager.
