Namibia Beach Holidays

While Namibia may not be a typical beach destination, Namibia’s coast is unlike any other and one of its greatest highlights for so many reasons.

It’s a coastline of mostly Namib Desert, where the dunes trundle into the cold Atlantic Ocean. Largely uninhabited with hovering fog rolling in, it isn’t called the Skeleton Coast for nothing.

This is, in fact, it's charm, kilometres and kilometres of National Park and stunning untouched wilderness, shipwrecks, and desert adapted wildlife. There may not be many people living here (except in coastal towns) but there is life and it’s the wonder of it that makes it so special.

It’s a change of pace in any Namibian itinerary from hot, arid and dry areas coming from any direction. Take a stroll on a quiet uncrowded beach, shore fishing is a biggie and it is host to the longest wave on the African continent at Donkey Bay. Experience the largest Cape fur seal colony, one of five Ramsar sites for birding in the wetlands of Walvis Bay and the coastal towns each have their own to show off along with a relaxed, holiday vibe.  

Most itineraries in Namibia will include the coast, it’s a highlight with good reason, although it may not deliver your typical beach holiday. If that’s what you’re after then the blue flag beaches of South Africa, where the sand is soft and the water is warmer, is more your thing. Camps Bay in Cape Town, Plettenberg Bay on the Garden Route, the Dolphin Coast in KwaZulu-Natal. There’s no shortage of options and if you still want more, there’s always Mozambique. Dive in.
