Thanks Silke for your helpfulness when we stayed. The rooms are amazing - spacious with an outdoor area. Only downside is that there was no heater in the room - being June it was a bit chilly. (Mind you I didn't ask for one.) There is an outside BBQ / braai available. The apartment is a stones throw from the beach. And a lovely 15 minute walk along the beach promenade to the town centre.

There was no fog when we visited but did experience a sand storm which was a first for us. We were given good advice from a local to travel behind the sand dunes to head toward Sossusvlei if there was one as the road to Walvis Bay can be treacherous. The sand can cover the roads and make it impassable. It was quite scary driving with the sand whipping across the road and down to near zero visibility but slowly slowly and awareness of vehicles around you is important - there were few vehicles and it only lasted half an hour. The sand storm ended 60km out of town.
