Cold water (The Benguela Current swings up from the southern antartic oceans...), lots of beasties in the water, great scenery and lots and lots of sand in the north (the Skeleton Coast). Probably lots more surf potential than the maps shows... but nobody ever goes there as the other areas are either very isolated or private (diamond mining companies) -or both...

Skeleton Coast - The basic wildlife attraction of the Skeleton Coast is Cape Cross, which we can see a seal colony numbering in the tens of thousands. The dunes are alive with insects and reptiles including geckos, wasps, snakes, spiders, beetles, and termites. Larger animals, such as black rhinos, elephant and lion migrates along the channels in search of food and water.
