More info about Henties Bay

Henties Bay is one of Namibia’s most popular holiday destinations and exudes an atmosphere of relaxation and peace. This sleepy coastal town with a population of just 2700 people comes alive particularly during the holiday season, but as it is nearly 500km away from the hustle and bustle of the Namibian capital of Windhoek, Henties Bay manages to stay un-congested and there is very little traffic to hassle visitors. The mild climate is another appealing attraction and further sets it apart from its country’s usually harsh arid and dry conditions. Henties Bay has a unique location and offers travellers the best of both the Namib Desert as well as the nearby ocean.

Holidaymakers can enjoy fun in the sun on the beach as parts of it are closed to anglers, quad bikes, and vehicles ensuring that they are not disturbed or stressed out by any unwanted noise or distractions. Henties Bay though is a fishing Mecca and has attracted many anglers to its shores each year as it boasts fish rich waters and great conducive conditions for avid fishermen to pursue their favourite pastime. For those who love quad bikes and 4WD vehicle excursions, the nearby Namib Desert offers many unique trails where the magic and majesty of the desert is on display for everyone to discover and explore. While Henties Bay is a small holiday town, it has many convenient amenities in close proximity to each other to ensure visitors have all they need on hand. Some of these facilities include medical services, a post office, accommodation options, a petrol station, pubs and restaurants, and a police station.
