The Central Namibian Coast, - its major towns being Walvis Bay, Swakopmund, and Henties Bay, - forms the western part of the Erongo Region.

...conceivable kind can be found next to amazing varieties of birds and wildlife, in the sea, on land, and in the air.
All this is coupled with the beautifully maintained architecture of a thrilling historic past, with vibrant modern industries and retail businesses, interesting museums, art galleries, book shops and craft markets, a modern infrastructure, and plenty of sightseeing opportunities in and around the coastal towns.

Swakopmund with its beach promenades, palm-tree shaded gardens, cosy street-side cafés and shops stocking inspiring Namibian as well as Southern African books and art works has got an almost Mediterranean flair and tourist facilities to match.

 

Accommodation - activity & touring - transport options in the coastal area of the Erongo Region

 

Tourist accommodation establishments ranging from self-catering holiday flats, B & B's and sophisticated guesthouses to 4/5-star hotels with in-house gyms and casinos cater for any taste and travel budget.

The same applies to activity and excursion options whose number also exploded, since Namibia became an insider tip for anyone keen to spend active holidays. Soft adventures on guided 4x4 excursions into the Namib Desert; boating trips for marine life encounters and serious fishing actions; sports activities for family fun hours and for testing ones skills in rock climbing and sky-diving; ocean kayaking amongst seals; chartering a small aircraft for a bird's eye view of the desert's dune fields and famous ships wrecks; exploring geological phenomena and pre-historic rock art sites; roughing it in the wild ... Swakopmund and its surroundings have it all!
