Henties Bay

Font Size Increase Font Size Decrease Print Page Send to Friend Add to Favorites

Henties Bay is the only town on the stretch of the Namibian coast known as the National West Coast Recreation Area. The area is mainly associated with fishing and marine life, (green turtles can be encountered north of Henties Bay) and it is part of a direct route to and from Torra Bay, Terrace Bay and on to the seal colonies at Cape Cross or Cape Fria. It is also encompassed in what is more widely-known as The Skeleton Coast National Park, conveniently situated only 75km north from Swakopmund. Accommodation in Henties Bay is available at a selection of hotels and guest houses in and around the town. There is also a remote lodge at Cape Cross north of the town.

History

Since the town's inception in the 1930's, it has expanded from a few fishermen’s shacks into one of Namibia's prime holiday resorts. Its founder, Major Henty van der Merwe, set up his own ramshackle huts in the 1950's. Today, Henties Bay is a favoured destination for holiday makers and for people looking to enjoy their golden years in peace and tranquility.
