Fishing on the Jetty

It is a nice outing for a few hours. You can stand and fish from the jetty. And it is a nice place to stand and watch the sun setting.

The drive from Walvis Bay to watch the sunset and eat here is really worth it. Although pricy, restaurant food is good and service very efficient.

This restaurant was recommended and booked for us by Villa Margarita and we were not disappointed. Hadn't expected much as from the outside looks like the end of Eastbourne pier but once the door was opened we were amazed at the classy restaurant beyond with glass floor in the entrance. The food was delicious and the service was great. I... More

The Swakopmund Jetty is very iconic of Swakopmund. It is perfect for an everyday stroll. The Jetty gives you a very scenic view of the ocean, the dunes as well as the town. A must visit to everyone in Swakopmund.

This charming jetty leads you to a final balcony, with a nice view on the city of Swakopmund and the sea, provided that the weather is not misty! There is also a good and friendly restaurant under the balcony, specialized in sea food of course. It can be windy and cold, you have to remind you you are really in... More

Very peaceful walk watching the fishermen and the view of the sea. This is a very old jetty but still looked sturdy.

This is a lovely jetty that extends a few 100 metres out to sea. When there are large seas running, you can get some stunning photos too.

We had an amazing dinner at Jetty 1905. The food and service were excellent. It is critical to get there before sunset (and remember Namibia has day light saving, so in winter the time is different to RSA). The only criticism I can make is that they should have a large sparkling wine/champagne list. I don't drink it very often,... More
