What people are saying:

In addition to the ghost town of Diamond Town, 10 kilometers away from the city center, Luderitz has another place worthy of being together. It is the first landing point for Europeans to enter Africa. On July 25, 1488, when Dias passed through Lüderitz on the way back, a cross-shaped stele named "St. James" was erected at the landing site. Due to the shallow waters of the port of Lüderitz, it is not suitable for modern ships to berth, Walvis Bay gradually replaced Lüderitz as the shipping center of Namibia. Recently, Lüderitz built a new wharf for the berthing of larger ships, and Lüderitz still retains some colonial buildings.

    Quiet place

    Nice walk up to the monument (cross) with splendid sea views. The walkway needs to be replaced; nature is slowly taking over again. Roughly a 20 km drive from city centre of Lüderitz

    Unexpected Paradise

    We decided to head to Diaz Point on a whim. What a treasure! Apart from the stone cross and the view point, the surrounds are beautiful. Little rocks pools, with coastal Fauna and flora all around mad...

    Luderitz Weekend

    Diaz Point is about 20km outside town. Good and safe gravel road for any vehicle. The views are fabulous. Relaxed quiet atmosphere. Really worth the visit.

    Stunning place!

    Amazing atmosphere at the rough sea - it is worth the drive on gravel road. If you are lucky you can even see flamingos on the way to Diaz Point.

    Nice surroundings

    The landscape around Diaz Point is worth the trip. The point itself has nothing particular to see, it just a not original cross.
