Walvis Bay

Although rimmed by the inhospitable Namib Desert, Walvis Bay boasts a huge natural lagoon that attracts hundreds of thousands of birds, including flamingos, pelicans and migratory species. The desert's Dune 7 is the highest sand dune near town and offers spectacular views. The wooden Rhenish Mission Church is also noteworthy.

Sheltered by the Pelican Point sand spit, the harbor is busy with fishing boats and ships. Dolphins, whales, and Cape fur seals inhabit these Atlantic waters around Pelican Point Lighthouse.
