Today Walvis Bay is the second largest town of Namibia and its only deep-sea harbour. Around 100 000 people live in Walvis Bay. As the water of the coastal area is very clean Walvis Bay is known for its high quality fish, oysters, rock lobsters, etc.
There are quite a few tourism highlights:
A boat trip along the coast to view dolphins and seals, whereby the seals jump right into the boat. With a bit of luck whales with their impressive tail fin can be spotted.
For bird enthusiasts and anglers trips by boat or 4x4 vehicles to the bird colonies of the 10 kilometre long lagoon of Sandwich Harbour are a special treat. In this large natural lagoon more than 120,000 birds have been counted, including pelicans and flamingos.
A trip to “Dune 7” just outside town is also well worth it. It is the highest dune in the area and one can not only enjoy an amazing view when standing on top of it, but also try the trendy sport called sand boarding.
As Swakopmund is a mere 30 km away, one can easily visit this coastal town with its German culture and other attractions.
One should not forget to mention the huge salt fields around Walvis Bay. On an area of 3500 hectares 400,000 tons of high quality salt are annually produced.
