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

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.

A challenge to climb but what a view from the top. Don't mind the sand in your shoes, some people take off their shoes and just climb with their socks. This was a fun activity to see dunes while visiting Walvis Bay especially if you...More

Take some time and climb to the top, although it takes some energy. Great view of the surrounding area once at the top. Picnic spot at the bottom. Free to view and enter.

It is quite a hard climb to the top. It took us 15 minutes to get to the top of the dune. Definitely a challenging activity.

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.
