South of Swakopmund, accessed (if you happen to approach from the north) on a stunning ocean road seamed by mighty dunes. The town is situated at a wide lagoon with innumerable sea birds, pelicans and flamingos. On a clear day one can see the black-and-white lighthouse at the tip of the premontary at the northwest of the lagoon. Visitors can also join a dolphin spotting cruise or explore the lagoon on a kayak tour. Walvis Bay has many restaurants, cafés and pubs as well as good B&B, hotel or guesthouse accommodation.
