Get to Know Henties Bay

Legendary among dedicated fishermen, who flock there from all over southern Africa, Henties Bay is also the main urban gateway to the desolately beautiful Skeleton Coast.

Situated about 70 kilometres north of Swakopmund, Henties Bay is a small fishing village sustained by an isolated freshwater spring discovered there in the 1920s. The surrounding rocky beaches offer some of the finest shore-based fishing in southern Africa, making it the focal point of Namibia’s leisure-fishing industry. The surrounding coastline is studded with remote campsites catering to this specialised clientele, while the top fishing sites, which bear such colourful names as Predikantsgat (Pastor’s Hole), Bakleigat (Fight Hole) and Winston Wreck, are all signposted.
