Shark Island Namibia

Booking Multiple Accommodations? See our Multi Booking Page


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.

Shark Island Accommodation

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!
