Everybody visiting the coast should drive up to see the seals at Cape Cross. At it's most there is more than 200000 seals in the area! The smell is terrible, and it is hard to describe how bad it really is, but I'll try.

There is actually a pretty new restaurant close to the beach, and the food is quite good.
