Terrace Bay Resort
If you are intent on getting away from everything and not bothered about creature comforts and piped entertainment, then Terrace Bay Resort will be bliss. There will be 350km between you and the nearest town along the Skeleton Coast.
The standards, amenities and services at these government-owned bungalows are limited to the essentials - and that adds to the excitement of rugged isolation.
There are two ways to drive to Terrace Bay: along the coast and through Damaraland. The coastal road goes from Swakopmund past Cape Cross giving a sense of ever-growing isolation as dune after dune lines bay after bay of nothingness.
If you are driving from Etosha or anywhere north and east, you will arrive at the Skeleton Coast Park gate via Damaraland and from there it is about 70km to Terrace Bay.
You can also fly to the camp in a chartered light aircraft.
Accommodation is in two- and three-bed bungalows with en suite bathrooms. The main living area comprises a restaurant, two bars, a recreation room and a small shop.
