Great View

There is a great view once you take a walk out on the jetty. This is also a great way to get some relief from the heat by getting the cool breeze.

If you're here, you've already taken the first step of visiting Namibia. I highly recommend you do if you want to experience a unique destination in a world where the word 'adventure' has been devalued. In Swakopmund you can soak up the interesting history of this bit of Africa, in the excellent museum (warts and all), take a flight that... More

The "Jetty restaurant 1905" is one of the best restaurants in Swakopmund. You can sit in- or outside and watch the waves of the ocean rolling over the sand.

A must, if not to eat good food, to see the waves and get some great photos. It was quite nice to walk quite nice long with the kids along with the kids.

Service is friendly, helpful, quick and kind. The fish was cooked perfectly and worth the value of the meal.

Very bad experience. The whole place is just left. The garden are a mess. Trees are dying and the pub at the end are also dying. No place to go to.

Having dinner at the Jetty Restaurant was an awesome experience. The Restaurant serves excellent food and just the idea of having dinner on the sea is exhilarating. I would do it over and over again.

This restaurant appears to be resting on its laurels - relying on the location to attract customers but not backing this up with good service. The food was quite acceptable but it is not acceptable to arrive with the main course before the starters are finished and have them placed on the table. The waiting staff are clearly inexperienced and... More

Come here to have a stunning view of the waves crashing into shore. This is a rather scenic area of town. It offers a great view of sunset on those days when the fog is not so heavy.
