Lüderitz

About the area

On the sandy shores of the Atlantic coast in Namibia, you’ll find this coastal town rich with history and windy summer days. After landing upon the area in 1487, Bartolomeu Dias named the coastal town Angra Pequena, however, it only boomed in 1908 when diamonds were discovered nearby. With exciting water and land-based activities to enjoy, you’ll definitely leave this town with more than you came with.
