Swakopmund Jetty Tours

Swakopmund Jetty
This popular raised boardwalk reaches out into the Atlantic Ocean some 300 yards (270 meters). And while construction started in 1911 with the intention of it extending more than 650 yards (600 meters), the start of World War I forced local builders into other tasks and the jetty was never really completed and eventually became unsafe to walk on. 

In 2010, after some additional work and a few updates, the jetty was deemed safe. Today, travelers can walk out onto it and head into the ocean for uninterrupted views of the vast sea and incredible sunsets. There’s even a popular high-end restaurant at the end of the jetty, serving up traditional German fare, as well as plenty of seafood dishes. It’s one of the few places in the country where visitors can sample fish beyond just the local hake.

Practical Info

The jetty is an easy walk from the center of Swakopmund, near the Tug Restaurant. Because temperatures drop as the sun goes down, remember to carry a jacket and be prepared for chilly temperatures.
Address: Swakopmund, Namibia

City Tour of Historical Swakopmund

City Tour of Historical Swakopmund

Swakopmund, known as the prime holiday resort of Namibia, was founded in August 1892 by the German Colonial Reich. For many years this town was the main harbour for the territory, being served by the mole and later the jetty. Both these structures still exist. Many historical buildings dating from that area are still being used and are rated as historical monuments. The distinct German Colonial character of Swakopmund has been well preserved and is undoubtedly a key attraction for tourists and entrepreneurs. The walking tour of Historical Swakopmund concentrates on the historical part of Swakopmund. Your guide will relate the history of Swakopmund and explain the origin of the various historical buildings in town. These include the Woermannhaus, a superb example of early architecture, Prinzessin-Rupprecht-Heim, a striking reminder of the way of life of the early years, and the Marine Memorial, a monument of superb detail.
