We were staying in a hotel directly across from the waterfront. Nice to go out in the morning and sit and watch the flamingos. Very peaceful until the big trucks from the salt factory start coming past!

Fine birdwatching! It is quite worthwhile walking along the shoreline as well and have a picnic in the park. The tiny harbor is still in a pre-too-touristy-state. Hopefully the plan to get in large cruise ships won't succeed...

If you drive a little south of Walvis Bay you can find a shockingly large number of Flamingos and other birds. The waterfront at Walvis Bay is also really nice however while I was there it wasn't really to see the "urban" areas of Namibia...More

Sheltered lagoon very close to the industrial hub of Walvis bay. Lots of flamingos quite close to the shore and seal swimming in the distance. Pleasant walk along the shoreline and an ideal place for a picnic.
