      Swakopmund

      Hot Sand: Cool Water

      Palm-lined streets, seaside promenades, fine accommodation, a pleasant summer climate: Swakopmund is a peaceful colonial-era town where the Namib Desert meets the Atlantic Ocean. The heat of the desert is balanced by the cool ocean air to create the most pleasant temperatures in Namibia. From here, travelers can venture out into the vast ocean through Walvis Bay, to experience the wildlife of the South Atlantic. Or they can venture out into the vast expanse of desert for a wide variety of activities, from unreal landscape photography to wild four-wheel-drive dune hopping.
