A stiff walk up Dune 7 is a definite requirement if ever you are in Swakopmund area. At 380 metres high it is a challenge for anybody above their teenager years.

Catch it before the sun rises, the sunrise from the dune is an amazing sight as the iron in the sand glows orange. There's also less people around that early, but be warned, it's in the desert so it's very cold until the sun rises...More

This is our second visit to Walvis Bay and Dune 7 and we were super surprised to see how much the dune actually moved. It is slowly covering the tables and palm trees planted on the Easterly side of the dune. If you flying in,...More

If you have a car it is definitely worth stopping off here as the dune is very accessible and only takes 15-20 mins to climb for lovely views.

Yes, there will be plenty of taxis. As a tip, the further you go down the taxi line/away from the ship, the cheaper they are willing to go (usually). I'd also recommend negotiating a rate in advance. Hope you have fun!

Try a taxi. Distance is not far. If there for the day, hire a car.
