Walvis Bay is well suited for the outdoor lifestyle, boasting sports such as sandboarding, kiting, surfing, swimming, angling, sailing, golf and other in- and outdoor sport codes.
During the December holidays Walvis Bay and its surrounding resorts come to life as beach sports, events and entertainment draw thousands of visitors, who want to wind down and soak up the sun. During this time anglers flock to the coast to catch some of the best quality and largest edible fish in Africa. These include steenbras, kabeljou, snoek and other delicious varieties.
The Dolphin Park and Long Beach resorts attract many visitors who choose to stay close to the ocean with the luxury of well-equipped accommodation and facilities. Tour operators offer various tour packages whether by quad-bike, off-road vehicles, sea excursions or scenic flights by plane.
Undoubtedly amongst the most famous desert landmarks in Namibia is Dune 7, one of the highest crests in the dune belt along the coast. With picnic sites and shaded with palm trees the dune is a popular sand-boarding haunt, while simply climbing to the top to see the view is an adventure on its own. The coastal dunes are popular with para-gliding, sand-boarding and quad biking enthusiasts.
Africa's bewitching seaside playground in the sun, Durban has from its earliest days possessed a special charm...a certain mystique that adds 'something extra' to the meeting of warm Indian Ocean, radiant golden sands and lush sub-tropical greenery. The creation of Durban Metro beckons visitors to this sublime paradise.
