Swakopmund’s Jetty!

Swakopmund’s famous landmark jetty was officially reopened on Friday, 30 July 2010 after repairs deemed it safe to walk on. The initial plan when building was started in 1911, was to make it 640m long, but when World War I broke out only 262m had been completed and that’s where it stayed.

The restored jetty has some new additions, such as a second deck offering uninterrupted views over the Atlantic Ocean and a wonderful restaurant at the end, where we enjoyed a couple of meals.

It truly is a place to linger, make wishes and be humbled by the force of the ocean.

The Restaurant at the end of the Jetty. Delicious food whilst the waves crash underneath and around you.
