Lüdertiz & Diaz Point
Lüderitz is well known to be windy and it is not an understatement! The wind was really strong when we were there, but apparently it was just a normal day judging by what the locals told me!!
The drive from Aus is stunning, crossing vast plains with mountains in the background and finishing in the first of the coastal Namib dunes before reaching Lüderitz. And of course, you can stop at the Garub waterhole to watch the desert horses.

In Lüdertiz, you can chose to camp on Shark Island and enjoy a windy night by the Atlantic with views on the Namib sand sea. The campsites offer a relative protection from the wind. If camping in tough conditions is not your think, then simply pick from one of the numerous guesthouses in town.

When visiting Lüderitz, I strongly recommend a drive to Diaz point and in its vicinity. Might be no need to go all the way down to Grosse Butch even thought it's quite a nice drive.
The lighthouse area with the abandoned building at Diaz point is really fun to visit and te drive along the coast takes you to stunning areas.
