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.
