According to Africa Facts Zone, the Skeleton Coast in Namibia and South of Angola is one of the most feared places in the world.
Local men in Namibia described it as The Land God Made in Anger while Portuguese sailors called it The Gates of Hell. Many have reportedly lost their lives because of its very strong currents.
The coast is mainly made of soft sand and the southern part of it is made of gravels. According to Wikipedia, Namibia declared its shore a national park where things like clay castles were built.
The place has also been a source of inspiration for many wildlife documentaries.

It has 400 rooms and will be operated under the American Wyndham Hotels brand. A room at the hotel goes for $250 (N96,875.00) per night and apartments are available for rent there. Gold for the hotel was locally sourced to reduce building costs.
“We want the ordinary people to the super-rich… to check-in. Our group has a factory that can do gold-plated stuff, so the cost for our equipment and furniture here is quite cheap,” Nguyen Huu Duong, the owner of the hotel, said.
