10 Beaches for Backpackers in Africa


5. Skeleton Coast, Namibia

Skeleton Coast has earned its name. Countless ships have run aground when fog blocks views of the shallow, rocky waters off the shore. The beach here is rugged and wild looking, with plenty of rocks, but it is also incredibly beautiful. If you are eager to see crumbling shipwrecks and whale bones, the Skeleton Coast is right for you.
