Very good view point. Visit shortly after sunrise. Then you like it very much. MUST VISIT if you are in swakopmund/ walvis bay.

Well, it's a lagoon area...and it has flamingos. Not much more to say!
There is a car park and you can then walk to be quite close to the birds. Was especially nice to be able to see them in flight.

This is a "must do" if you are in Walvis Bay. I understand it can get quite crowded (there's a viewing area with carpark) but I encountered very few people. The flamingoes, of course, are not THAT close so a long lens is helpful. There were hundreds there when I went and I thoroughly enjoyed watching them, including in flight.

I stayed in a hotel right in front of the beach where they get together. Really nice to wake up and see the flamingos in such large amounts.

Staying at Flamingo Villas in Walvis Bay you get chance on a daily basis to see the flamingos as they are across the road on the shoreline every day.
The bay is certainly worth a visit. Its a beautiful place.

Very nice place to go for a walk and see flamingos in their natural habitat. They are many and very close to you. Definitely something worth seeing it if you are in a Walvis Bay... I would recommend to take smtg warm with you as it might be windy... 😉

It is amazing to see so many flamingoes right by the sea shore. The birds are unperturbed by people and cars so you get great viewing. You can see many just from Lagoon Promenade but even more if you drive into and round the lagoon. A delight. For birdwatchers there are other species to see too.
Recommended.

Lovely to see the flamingoes up close; it is easy to forget that these are actually wild birds and do not like people getting too close. So keep to the tarred walkway (Lagoon Promenade Road) so that everybody can enjoy these magnificent birds going on with their daily things. The walkway goes from Esplande Park right up to Pelican Bay Hotel, about 3.5km

How fun! Internet says there are over 40,000 flamingos in this area, and it was so cool to see pink as far as the eye can see. Loved their little legs pumping up and down to stir up the mud and their food... just fun to watch. Really relaxing but really windy the day we were there.

A for lagoon itself, it's nothing special. It can have many people who are trying to come closer to the birds for a better photo and they scare away the birds. For you to enjoy the wild birds, flamingos and may other, it's much better to enter the natural park of Pink lake.
