  Me chillin' out at the Seabreeze Guesthouse

Swakopmund, affectionately referred to as Swakop by the locals, is Namibia's capital of adventure ... this little place between the Atlantic and the Namib is the base for all sorts of desert adventures, from dune boarding to flights over the Namib & Skeleton Coast.

The town has a heavy German influence, particularly noticeable from the architecture. It is used by tourists as a base for exploring this part of the Namib - or simply to chill out by the beach ... Chill out in the real sense of the word as the sea is C O L D!

There are some really stylish hotels and lovely guesthouses in the area, a highly recommended one is the Seabreeze Guesthouse.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
