Walvisbaai Things to Do: 46 reviews and 92 photos
Located on the road to Swakopmund, Bird Island is a man-made structure used for the production of guano. Build in 1932 by the entrepreneur Adolf Winter, the structure rests on 1000 stilts and is 17 000 meter square in area. Our tour guide told us that Winter's wife left him and said the he was crazy for building Bird Island and that he was not going to make any money from it. The birds however are thankfull to him for building this breeding site for them.
