“Amazing view!”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

My girlfriend & I discovered this during our walk on the beach. The Jetty restaurant was closed unfortunately but just going on the dock was really nice. You got an amazing view of the ocean with the sand dunes in the background.

If you're in Swakpomund, a must see. Plus it's free. :)

“Yeah, great view from the Jetty looking back. Fresh Atlantic ocean air, very very different to the Indian ocean.”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Had a fantastic meal at the Jetty, really get there for a lovely lunch. Dissed out with the best foods from the Atlantic and Namibian shore. Service was great. The restaurant has a glass floor so you can have a look at the fish swimming in the ocean as you sit at your table and have a meal and some nice wine.

“Extended into the ocean!”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

I guess, since its the furthest reaching point, from land into the ocean, that you can access "by foot" - so it's definitely worth of visiting! each time we visit Swakopmund, we take a walk on the jetty. Ocean provides exquisite scenery for at times it is still and other times very stormy, while you find yourself walking on the "extended beam into the sea". You can fish from the jetty with a permit obtained at the Ministry office situated near aquarium.

“too busy, overrated”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

The restaurant was very busy, crowded with noisy tour groups. It is really overrated and there is no point having dinner there as it is dark outside and you have no view. Perhaps a lunch is advisable. The toilets were nor very clean. Service just acceptable. Food was medium.
