The lodge has ten chalets, the design of which has been cleverly designed and inspired by ships that have been wrecked along the Skeleton coast. They chalets are spread out along the sand dunes so that guests have the pleasure of waking up to spectacular desert views from their own private deck, and the sound of the waves and refreshing Atlantic Ocean breezes. Eight cabins come with double or twin beds, and two cabins are family units. All cabins have private bathrooms, including showers, and are equipped with a safe and wood-burning stove for guests to keep cosy on chilly nights. Shipwreck Lodge prides itself on maintaining a light footprint by using eco-friendly water and waste management and using solar-power.
