Skeleton Coast

Discover the iconic Skeleton Coast

Few attractions are as evocative and atmospheric as the haunting Skeleton Coast. Situated on Namibia’s remote western coastline, it is named after the many ships that sank here over the past few centuries.

The rusted remains of wrecked ships are often surrounded by swirling mists and make for moody and dramatic visuals. The Skeleton Coast is home to the flourishing Cape Cross seal colony — one of the largest breeding colonies of Cape fur seals.
