Lüderitz Peninsular Tour Route

Diaz Cross - The Causeway

Wooden Causeway

A visit to Diaz Point approx 18km drive from the town is a must. There is a warning sign

at the entrance to the wooden causeway that leads to the rock advising visitors that the short journey is at their own risk, so take care. If it is windy during your visit be careful when standing on the top of the rock. Don't get blown off. The backdrop of the mighty Atlantic Rollers crashing onto the rocky shoreline and small islands make for some dramatic wave photographs. You'll see jackass penguins scuttling around on nearby Halifax Island.

The Diaz Cross at Diaz Point Luderitz

Have your photo taken standing by the Diaz Cross. The backdrop views of the Atlantic Rollers crashing onto the rocky coastline make for some spectacular photographs.

You'll see plenty of Cape Fur seals basking on the rocks. The seals on the rock shown right aren't impressed by the mighty South Atlantic waves that crash onto their 'turf'. They just snooze away the afternoon waiting for the fish-shop to open.

Diaz Point Camping Site

Diaz Point Camping: There's a nice little camp site here, where you sleep in a sheltered walled area on bunks. The 'roof covering' is simply a fishing net, through which you can watch the southern stars while listening to the South Atlantic waves breaking on the nearby shore. They have clean hot water showers and flush toilets, but no electricity. There's a coffee shop / bar. If you're into camping by the sea this is enjoyably different.
