Shark Island Namibia

Booking Multiple Accommodations? CLICK HERE


Shark Island and can be found on the west coast of Namibia, near Luderitz. It’s technically not an island anymore, but a peninsula connected to the bay. At Shark Island Namibia guests can stay in a lighthouse with views of the ocean, Penguin Island and the Luderitz harbor.

It is the perfect value-for-money location to explore Luderitz. It is one of the earlier settlements in Namibia and was found by Adolf Luderitz in 1883 as a trading base. Shark Island has a rich history.

In Luderitz there are many old German buildings from the colonial era, now framed by the harsh desert landscape. The town was home to a Norwegian whaling station and thereafter a diamond trading town.

The Lighthouse: There are 2 rooms with 2 beds each, as well as 2 bathrooms. Suitable for self-catering accommodation with an equipped kitchen.

Camping: Camp sites have shared ablutions, access to a 220V power point, a built-in brick fireplace and taps can be found throughout the site. Prepare for cold and windy weather as it can get icy next to the Atlantic ocean, especially at night!
