Disappointing - Every time we visit Mossel Bay, we hope things will have improved, but we are always disappointed. It's too big to have that small-town charm anymore, but doesn't have the proper infrastructure of a larger town.
It's probably fine if all you're interested in is the beach (which is beautiful), but don't expect fine dining or tourist attractions.
Diaz Strand - Dit is een van die mooiste en skoonste strande wat daar is. Dit is lekker om net te stap

Holiday in Mosselbay - City with a town feeling. Friendly people. We had the best meal at Gipsy Café close to the harbor with excellent service! We would have liked to show our kids how the ships come into the harbor but unfortunately were not allowed inside.
Beautiful - I have been on lots of seaside holidays, but Dana Bay is in a different class. I am considering buying property in Dana Bay. This is a peace of heaven.
A real relaxed town - Enjoyed every moment. Had some of the best Fish and Seafood at the VIking Restaurant.
Mossel Bay is so clean! - Before we decided to have a holiday in Mossel Bay, a friend commented that it was 'so clean'. Absolutely true. Even though the Buffalo Rally was on while we were there, everything was well controlled. And the day after some 3000 bikers had left, the campsite was spotless again. The city is so well-kept, it is a real example for us in Gauteng where litter is the order of the day. Santos Beach doesn't have waves so is great for 'exercise swimming'; however, Dias Beach, just up the road does have great waves. All in all a great holiday!
Best kept secret - Beautiful scenery, range of good accommodation, excellent restaurants, wonderful beaches, interesting shops. Also an ideal base from which to explore the klein karoo and numerous mountain passes.
Small town outside Mossel Bay - If you want to be outside Mossel Bay to enjoy the peace and tranquil surroundings then stay in Dana bay and explore around it
Beautiful views - We took a drive throught the golf estate and clubhouse and we enjoyed the stunning views of the ocean.
Rustigheid - Dit is een van die mooiste en skoonste strande wat daar is. Dit is lekker om net te stap en die natuurskoon te bewonder.
Exquisite - I am not a golfer (my husband is) so did not play but the course is beyond beautiful with the sea as your view. We would walk the course's path everyday to the clubhouse and back for exercise. We enjoyed great breakfasts and dinner at clubhouse. Shuttle service at estate is wonderfully convenient. Give them a call and they collect you from anywhere and drop you wherever you want to go within the Estate. The casino and spa in on your doorstep if that's your thing. Two beaches. Oyster beach is not for swimming. We took walks down to Eden beach and then all the way to the caves. We tried St Blaize trail but quickly turned back upon my son seeing a puffadder!
Glentana is beautiful - What a beautiful country we live in and what a beautiful area to visit
Peaceful and safe - Linkside is peaceful and very safe. If you are the quiet or reserved type, you'll definitely enjoy your stay in this area.
MOSSEL BAY - VERY AFRIKAANS, BUT GREAT BEACH AND MUSEUMS!
Mossel Bay - It has lots to offer!
Peace and quiet at the sea - Boggomsbaai is a peaceful, quiet village (out of season) surrounded by farmlands. Nearby areas that are worth a visit are Fransmans Hoek and Gouritz.
Paradys - Sal hier kan aftree!
Pinnacle Point Beach & Golf Resort - When the golf course opened in 2006, the American publication Golf Travel & Leisure selected Pinnacle Point as one of the top ten new courses in the world and has since been rated among the top twenty courses in South Africa. Darren Clarke, 2011 Open Champion, described the course as “the best golf course on the planet”.
This magnificent Estate offers intimate, secluded beaches along four kilometres of spectacular coastline, prolific indigenous wildlife, birdlife and a wide variety of fynbos.

Boggomsbaai: Heaven on Earth - A beautiful and tranquil little Holiday Village with pristine beaches, a safe and peaceful environment, and with only the sound of resounding waves!

Garden Route's Adventure Capital - Anyone looking for adventure should come to Mossel Bay. We can keep you busy for a few days. See some of the origins of modern man with a visit to the Pinnacle Point Caves. Also of recent historical interest are the relics of the first Europeans to land in South Africa. The museum has interesting info about the first trade with local inhabitants, the first church service, and the first letter posted in South Africa and more. Mossel Bay has one of the mildest climates in Africa.

Danabay is Kay Cera seeuitsig selfsorg wereld . - Danabaai se natuur en rustigheid laat mens sommer heerlik ontspan - die twee pragtige wit sand strande is asemrowend -die koel stil nagte in Danabaai maak dit soveel makliker om te ontspan en net met die natuur geluide wakker te word - maklike verkeer beheer - aangesien Danabaai direk aansluit by die hoof verkeersligte op die n2 - dus geen verkeer ophoping - naby die nuwe Mosselbaai mall is - casino - restaurante en vermaak - Danabaai is die plek om na jou vakansie uitgerus te wees .

Diaz Beach - I did have a chance to go to the beach because of the hectic schedule of the retreat I attended at Hartenbos. However, I know it from my previous visits, it is a great beach and next time I visit I would like to do the hiking trail.
Overnight - As we were only a day in Mossel Bay we did not see much but the area we were in Klein Brak is beautiful and we definitely will go again.
Great Mossel Bay - I just love Mossel Bay. I could move there tomorrow. It is so clean! The people of Mossel Bay are so friendly and it is a safe destination. Sea Gypsy is the best place to eat.

Fantastiese Strand - Skoon, geen vuilgoed wat rondle nie en sommer net 'n stunning plek om vakansie te gaan hou.
Honeymoon Bliss - The view that we had from our Cottage to Daiz beach was breathtaking, at night it was even more beautifull. The beach was so clean and safe. We really enjoyed every moment we had in Mosselbay.
Our first visit! - The scenary is good, the traffic cops grumpy, but the local pubs and clubs are awesome! Do not expect steakhouse quality steaks at Seafood restaurants, but overall the food is great at any restaurant!!

Review Mossel Bay - Mossel Bay is indeed one of my prefered holiday destinations in South Africa. Mossel Bay has everything you need for a perfect holiday - beautiful beaches, plenty of shops, fun things to do and it is tranquility itself. I will definately go back for more.

We really totally enjoyed our stay it was Blessed. thank you SafariNow for everything and we will do it again....and again ;)
Mossel Bay - lovely place to relax - Mossel bay was a lovely place to stay. We were on the outskirts in Dana Bay, where our hostess at the Guest House (Kay Cera) was absolutely wonderful.
Beautiful area and very clean. Beaches stunning, and look forward to making use of a beachfront chalet on our next visit.

Too bad we didn't stay more than a weekend!

Diaz Beach - We went to Diaz Beach for vacation during March 2012 and had a fabulous time. We already booked for next year March/April at the same pace. the beach is safe for to go fishing and let the children play. It is also a nice walking distance from the ATKV Resort.
Will Definately tell our friends to visit Diaz Beach.
Diaz Beach - Clean and quiet Beach.
Mosselbaai vakansie - Sjoe ons kan glad nie kla oor ons vakansie in Mosselbaai nie, dit was regtig ons lekkerste vakansie ooit. Ons beplan om regtig weer in Mosselbaai te gaan vakansie hou. Die eetplekke was regtig van die beste en die vriendelikste diens wat ons ontvang het. Ons het by Golfers Dream gaste huis gebly vir 5 dae en dit was regtig die beste. Dankie aan Safarinow vir hul diens om ons te kon help om die beste plek te gekry het. Mosselbaai ons gaan definetief gou weer terug kom!!!!
Spectacular Dana Bay - Spectacular views, even had three whales coming in close to shore putting on a wonderful show for us. The B&B was great, very comfortable accommodation, lovely and warm which we needed with the freezing cold weather. Unfortunately, therefore, no beach!
Short stay in Mossel Bay - We spent a night in Mossel Bay on our way to a sports competition. We spent some time with Peter and Christine at the Outeniqua Moon Percheron Stud Farm. We were treated like old friends. Later in the afternoon we went to the Dias Museum complex where we saw amazing sea creatures and the lifesize replica of the Dias Caravel was a winner. We slept at Cross Court self catering accomodation. The little touchs like fresh milk in the fridge and bananas and OTees for the children just enforced the fact that we would definitely go back for a longer stay. The accomodation was very comfortable and yet very affordable too.
Mossel Bay - Absolutely fantastic! Friendly, relaxed, BEAUTIFUL SCENERY!! Lovely restaurants. The ideal place to visit when one's soul needs to be re-charged. Miss the place tremendously when one leaves.......
Would like to go back as soon as I possibly can.
