Fondly referred to as “the playground of Namibia”, Swakopmund is Namibia’s pre-eminent coastal resort for the locals. A melting pot mix of bohemian cultures, European cafes, German pattiseries and architecture, and a real mining hub, this town offers more adventure and activities than any other place in the country. With palm-lined streets, seaside promenades and fine accommodation for all budgets, Swakopmund is the most popular holiday destination in Namibia for locals. Its pleasant summer climate and decent beaches attract anglers and surfers from all over the world, and for those hardy Namibians, also beach lovers. For the international guest, Swakopmund is a bohemian mix of German correctness with Africa time, laid back attitude with adrenalin activities, misty mornings and desert heat. It is coulourful, it is vibrant, but most of all, it is fun.
