Torra bay

The Torra Bay Resort campsite is only open between 1st December and 31st January, which coincides with the Namibian school holiday season. Camping sites have to be booked and paid for in advance and confirmation must be shown at the Skeleton Coast Park gate. The shore-based fishing here is excellent and that is really the only reason to stay here.

The resort is situated in the Skeleton Coast National Park on Namibia's cold and icy Atlantic coast. It is approximately 270kms north of the town Henties Bay. This part of the coastline is notorious for its treacherous sand banks, to which many ships over the years have fallen prey. A number of shipwrecks are testimony to this tragic past, hence the name Skeleton Coast.

There are 60 campsites at the Torra Bay Resort, and the amenities are pretty basic, such as water, fire wood, a shop and a petrol station. Visitors are advised to bring all of their own equipment with them. There are no banking facilities.

There are two roads leading inland from the coast, but as this is a sparsely populated region, care should be taken when driving on the sometimes unmaintained gravel and sand roads. If you do have an accident or a breakdown, your wait might be a long one, before the next vehicle comes along. Most accidents in this area are caused by fast driving.

Day visitors are not permitted to Torra Bay.

The main attractions here are angling, walking, bird watching and more fishing!
