Welcome to Island Cottage
Lüderitz is a harbour town in south-west Namibia, lying on one of the least hospitable coasts in Africa. It is a port developed around Robert Harbour and Shark Island. Island Cottage is situated on Shark island only 800m from the surreal colonial town of Luderitz.
Island Cottage is located in the town of Luderitz in southern Namibia. Set out on Shark Island and facing directly into the southwesterly gales, this small place offers 3 self-catering rooms with an outside braai area.
As the island is joined to the mainland via a causeway the Island Cottage
is a convenient stopover when visiting the local attractions of this coastal
town. The cottage is well located with guest rooms offering great sea-views.
This is a self-catering establishment with basic kitchen facilities, designed for guests to prepare and enjoy a breakfast, lunch or meat on a braai (barbeque) themselves. For those not wishing to self cater the management will be only to pleased to recommend a local restaurant or bar. Luderitz has everything one would expect from a German town, delicatessens, coffee shops and Lutheran churches. The nearby icy Atlantic Ocean is home to seals, penguins and other interesting marine life.

- The Penguin Cottage is furnished with 2 single beds and a comfortable sleeper couch, which can easily be transformed into a double bed. It also has a fully equipped kitchen and an en-suite bathroom and shower. Linen and towels are provided.
- The Flamingo Cottage has an en-suite bathroom and shower, a breakfast corner in one room and 2 single beds in the other.
Self-drive activities include a trip to The Lüderitz Peninsula, much of which lies outside the Sperrgebiet prohibited area, making it an interesting half-day excursion. The picturesque and relatively calm bay, Sturmvogelbucht, has a lovely beach and is viable for swimming, but the water temperature would only be amenable to a sea or a penguin.
A Norwegian whaling station was sited there in 1914, but is now a rusty ruin.
At Diaz Point, 22km south of Lüderitz, there is a lovely, classic lighthouse
and replica of Dias cross erected in July 1488 by Portuguese navigator Bartolomeu
Dias on his return voyage from the Cape of Good Hope.
The point is frequented by seals and from the nearby car park, you can observe the jackass penguin colony on Halifax Island. You can also observe cormorants, wading birds and even the occasional school of dolphins.
Grosse Bucht (Big Bay) at the southern end of the peninsula,
is favoured by flocks of flamingos that feed in the tidal pools. It’s
also the site of a small but picturesque shipwreck on the beach.
Tourists to the area should note that when the wind blows, (which is most of the time), the final 10km into Luderitz may be blocked by the Barchans dune field, which seems hell-bent upon crossing the road. The drifts pile quite high before the road crews are able to clean them off and conditions do get hazardous, especially if it’s foggy.
