Seaview Hotel zum Sperrgebiet
Luderitz - Namibia
The sea-facing Seaview Hotel offers comfortable accommodation in the picturesque harbour town of Luderitz. Built in 1996, the hotel is situated in a quiet part of town and has views that overlook the bay, harbour and nearby buildings. The icy, but clean South Atlantic Ocean, is home to a variety of marine life including seals and penguins. The desolate beaches also support flamingos and ostriches.
The hotel is part of the Protea Hotel chain. It has an 'a la carte' restaurant, that specializes in sea food and a breathtaking sunset can be enjoyed from the lounge, or a sundowner in the bar. Guests can relax in comfort at the in-house sauna or the heated swimming pool. Seaview is a 3 time winner of an International Award for Tourist, Hotel and Catering Industry.
Accommodation is in 22 tastefully-furnished rooms. 19 of them have panoramic views over the bay. They all have en-suite bathrooms, direct-line telephones, tea/coffee station, radio and a 3-channel TV system.
Most visitors go to the Lüderitz Peninsula, much of which lies outside the Sperrgebiet prohibited area. It makes for an interesting half-day excursion from the town. There is the picturesque and (relatively) calm bay, Sturmvogelbucht, which has a lovely beach and is viable for swimming if you were born a fish or a penguin. The Norwegian whaling station that was built in 1914, is now nothing more than a rusty ruin.
22kms south of Lüderitz is Diaz Point, a quaint, but classic lighthouse and a replica of a cross erected by Portuguese navigator Bartholomew Dias, on his return voyage from the Cape of Good Hope. The point is frequented by seals, and from the nearby car park, you can observe the African Jackass penguin colony on Halifax Island. Cormorants, wading birds and the occasional school of dolphins can be spotted from here.
Grosse Bucht (Big Bay) at the southern end of the peninsula, is another wild and scenic beach. Woolly hat and gloves are usually needed for this normally cold and windy spot, that is home to flocks of flamingos that feed in the tidal pools. There is also a small, but picturesque shipwreck on the beach. Just a few kilometers north of Grosse Bucht, is a small seaside rock arch, known as Klein Bogenfels.
