“An adequate day-trip, but not more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

I stopped by Walvis Bay on a port call during a 2 week cruise from Cape Town back to Europe.

As I understand it, Walvis Bay is being promoted as a vacation destination. The scenery and tranquillity of the beach and waterfront are certainly worth seeing, but, unless you like lazing on a beach for days on end, I would suggest that a day's visit is enough to find sufficient to do here.

“So original”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

What a lovely little place. Walvis bay itself is a bit boring! but the waterfront is lovely. We spent the whole afternoon there, just enjoying summer and sunshine and the atmosphere. Tomorrow we will do the same thing again.

“One of the greatest destinations in Southern Africa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

From the camel rides, quad biking, para gliding and the cool waters of the Atlantic Ocean, with the cold Benguela Current - Walvis Bay and Swakopmund offer a great destination in the Namib Desert. The distance from the Capital City, Windhoek, is quite huge. Travellers are advised to stay in Swakopmund or Walvis Bay, unless they are not allergic to driving.
