Henties Bay, Namibia

The gateway to the National West Coast Recreation Area is one of Namibia’s most popular high-season tourist draws for domestic travelers.

Oodles of folk leave behind the city streets of Windhoek and head to the wind-blasted shoreline here.

They come to ride rumbling 4X4s over the undulating desert dunes, to break out into the inhospitable wildernesses of the Skeleton Coast, and to see the thousands of seals that pepper the beach banks to the north of town.

The town is also known for its diversity of marine life, which draws anglers and boaters to boot.
