Hot Sand and Cool Water

German colonial architecture proliferates in Swakopmund, and this 'Little Bavaria' with palm trees, is where the Namib Desert meets the Atlantic Ocean. It is Namibia's holiday town and adventure capital, for dune boarding, quad biking, desert nature tours, camel riding, sky diving and Walvis Bay marine tours. A cool sea mists often engulfs this town, usually burned off by mid-morning.
