Swakopmund Jetty, Swakopmund Namibia
A wooden jetty for Swakopmund was commissioned on 25 April 1905 and was 275m long and 9m wide. By 1907 it was extended by 50m and widened with 5m. However, by 1911 it was decided that the wooden jetty should be replaced by a steel jetty and construction was commenced in 1912. Over time the jetty became very popular amongst anglers and people who enjoy leisure walks and wants to enjoy a view of Swakopmund. Sadly no major repairs were done to the jetty in years and as a result it was considered unsafe for pedestrians and was closed in 1983. Fortunately funds were raised, repairs were done and the jetty was re-opened in October 2006. The Jetty 1905 restaurant was opened in 2010 at the end of the jetty, with breathtaking views of the sea and Swakopmund. Today the jetty is a big tourist attraction and it remains popular amongst locals for recreational purposes
