When you visit our part of the planet you will not only be in two worlds of the ocean and the dessert you will also be between two cultures, The town of Swakopmund and Walvisbay hug the coastline of Namibia. Our neigbourhood lies in between these two towns, we are 15km from Walvisday and 14Km from Swakopmund.
Swakopmund is a German colonial town with interesting architechture, here you can experience German hospitality with African warmth. The town is full of wonderfull restaurant and great coffee shops, gifts shops and the richness of the all the semi precious gems that is on offer in this part of the world.
Walvisbay is a harbour town with a breathtaking lagoon that is home to thousands of pink flamingoes. You can climb dunes, windsail, kayak, go for a harbour cruise to meet the intresting locals such as seals, pelicans and other sea creatures. to finish it all off you can enjoy some of the best oysters in the world!
Longbeach is new beachfront development, most of the homes are holiday homes and if you visit over the holidays or weekends there will be lost of activity, but during the off peak season it is quiet with a very laid back and relaxing atmosphere. The view along the coast will leave you calm and relaxed.
