Situated 440 km from the capital lays Henties bay. 70 km from Swakopmund and 100 km from Walvis bay. The town is predominantly a tourist destination for anglers and 4x4 enthusiasts. Its property market has expanded significantly since the late 1990s, particularly for upmarket holiday accommodation. All the houses have been given peculiar names by its residence.
Henties Bay is situated in the National West Coast Recreation Area but there are few restrictions, particularly for driving off-road on the beach and across the plains.
A Few kilometers to the North lay the Dead Sea. Often visited by tourist because of the high salt content it allows people to float.
