Torra Bay, Skeleton Coast Namiba

 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.

The campsite is only open between 1st December and 31st January, which coincides with the Namibian school holiday season.

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.
