“Extraordinary”
Reviewed 23 October 2010

October is not high season here - we were the only guests apart from a couple of cheerful fishermen from Cape Town. It was a 6 hours 250km drive from Cape Cross (itself remote) with only a handful of cars and NO SERVICES en route (petrol, refreshments etc). But warm welcome, good service and lots of cameraderie at this atmospheric spot. Luckily they had petrol at Terrace Bay. Unluckily there was a patch of sand near Torra Bay which trapped us on the way out (in a 2x2) and we had to be pulled out after ah hour by a passing 4x4 -beware! Scenery magical. Some wildlife at the (dry) river crossings (oryx, springbok, flamingoes). Route out of the National Park through the Damaraland mountains to Palmwag equally dramatic. The whole trip was awesome.

We spent 2 nights at Terrace Bay end of October, and we really liked the place atmosphere.
Facilities in rooms are pretty basic, but they are very clean, and they've got a feeling of "end of the world".
Looking outside you can see the rough sea, waves breaking on the shore, cormorants flying around.
The restaurant is one of the best we had on our tour. Plenty of food. If you take the full menu (starter, soup, main course, dessert), it's a very good quality/price ratio, and you can be sure you won't be hungry after the meal...
The bar is a nice place to relax, listening to the stories of fishermen who are here for a week of holidays.
Staff is very friendly, very helpful.
The scenery around Terrace Bay is very rough, but it gives a true feeling of Skeleton Coast. The road up to there is beautiful with sand dunes, animals in dry river beds (plenty of Oryx, springboks,...)

Reviewed 29 November 2009

Arrived here as we (well me at least - husband not so keen) wanted to drive all the way up the Skeleton Coast. A long drive from Swakopmund, but enjoyable and puncture free!

We were told that the drive would be hugely boring, but we quite enjoyed it. Stopped off with the seals at Cape Cross - that is really unmissable - lots of seals pups and the big males lumbering round / fighting / etc - definitely worth the trip - and in no way as smelly as the guidebooks would have you believe.

Terrace Bay rooms were better than expected, but relatively basic. Food is poor - they are right by the sea with great fishing, and they serve frozen fish pieces! However - all the staff are very friendly and charming.

If we had to do our trip again I would probably skip this bit and turn off the Skeleton Coast a bit earlier. It wasn't really worth the very long drives for a one night stay. Not sure why you would stay any longer, unless you are there for the fishing.

There are more scenic and comfortable spots to spend your time, so if time is limited give Terrace Bay a miss. If you do go up there, then you have no choice but to stay here as there is nowhere else - unless you have a tent or a camper - so hence the recommendation.
