Here's a short 2 min video fly-over of the Sand Sea and nearby Walvis Bay that I've prepared using Google Earth Pro. The dunes can be immense... 300 m high x 32 km long (980' high X 20 mi long)... starkly beautiful and other-worldly in appearance! The dunes extend right into the sea, south of Walvis Bay. This town of approx 60,000 is about the only natural deep water port for large cruise ships along the coast of Namibia.
The Namib Sand Sea is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
