Walvis Bay Lagoon

Walvis Bay Lagoon

The dominant south-westerly winds create ideal conditions for a variety of water-sports and regattas for hobby cats, fireballs and catamarans are organised by the Walvis Bay Yacht Club. The Lagoon is an international Ramsar sanctuary for birds. Estimated to be 3500 years old it is one of the most important coastal wetlands in Southern Africa.

As a must-visit for bird lovers, it provides a feeding ground for 200,000 birds of 50 species including flamingos, the chestnut-banded plover, Damara terns, pelicans, cormorants and sea gulls. A 3km long promenade ensures a scenic stroll on its edges. Further south lies the red to blue hues of the largest solar salt evaporation fields in Africa.

Those keen to explore the open sea can set off in a sea kayak with an experienced guide. In addition to close-up views of Cape fur seals and water birds, bottle-nosed dolphins and occasionally leather-back turtles and whales are also spotted.

Visible from the main road, a few kilometers north of Walvis Bay visitors can see the Guano Platform. The platform covers 17,000 square metres and rests on 1,000 free-standing wooden stilts. Today the platform is home to thousands of birds as a nesting perch.
