Skeleton Coast and Park

The Skeleton Coast is the northern part of the Atlantic Ocean coast of Namibia and south of Angola. From the Kunene River south to the Swakop River. It is sometimes used to describe the entire Namib Desert coast. The Bushmen of the Namibian interior called the region "The Land God Made in Anger", while Portuguese sailors once referred to it as "The Gates of Hell".The coast is largely soft sand occasionally interrupted by rocky outcrops. The southern section consists of gravel plains while north of Terrace Bay the landscape is dominated by high sand dunes. Skeleton Bay is now known as a great location for surfing.
