Lüderitz for me is the most magical of all the places I have stayed at during my various travels (EX-UK) in Namibia. The delicious seafood (Lüderitz oysters (#1 in the world), rock lobster, Lüderitz Abalone (only available at the fabulous Lüderitz Nest Hotel right on the sea), the fantastic Halifax Island dolphin, seal, penguin and DIAS CROSS Catamaran Tour is a must, Kolmanskop Ghost Town, FELSENKIRCHE and the Waterfront-Harbour are ALL a must. I enjoy running and there is no shortage of gravel roads with virtually no cars to get fit and fully absorb the natural desert surroundings. I highly recommend this place and my favourite two places to eat and drink? PENGUIN RESTAURANT and CRAYFISH BAR & LOUNGE. Lüderitz is the hidden gem of Namibia - for sure.

With wind-swept desert dunes, abounding wildlife, dramatic coastlines, and a diverse blend of cultures, Namibia is a fascinating and alluring country to explore. Lüderitz lies tucked away on the fringe of the Namib Desert along the Diamond Coast and is beautifully framed by the forceful Atlantic Ocean. The working port town has an incredible laid-back atmosphere, almost sleepy, with a surreal appearance lending it a special charm. Grand old mansions perch on hilltops, a nostalgic tribute to the affluence of the diamond mining era. Many of the town's colourful buildings, lovingly maintained, replicate old Bavaria and are constructed in the Wilhelmian Art Deco architectural style. A splendid waterfront complex incorporates the bustling harbour, shops, excellent restaurants, and business premises. A variety of hotels and quaint guest houses offer homely accommodation to suit the needs of all visitors.
