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.

The beaches are magnificent and the warm sea swim a real delight.

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!!

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. Crystelle Arends on Mossel Bay - Cape Town

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.

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!!!!

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.

We did not spend much time in Mossel Bay. We took the kids to Hartenbos which has more entertainment for them.

There are many reasons for this.
When a town’s climate is rated “Best in the World next to that of Hawaii “ you know that you are in for a special treat!
A town that entices you to return again and again!
We have beautiful, clean, Blue Flag status beaches where you can spend days Swimming, Surfing, Rock fishing, Diving (Even White Shark Cage diving for the more adventurous), and many other activities. Or just laze in the sun building Sandcastles with the wonderful golden sand.
Mossel Bay is also known for it’s good food with a variety of Restaurants to suit every taste, be it Fine dining or a casual fresh Seafood meal with your feet in the sand.
This is truly a destination for the Adventurer, the Romantic and the whole Family!
Mossel Bay also houses Shopping Malls with all the major shops as well as cozy Coffee shops and Arts, Crafts & Gift shops.
Mossel Bay is a treasure trove of History. Five hundred years of European exploration is displayed in the Bartholomeu Dias Museum. This is also where the Post Office Tree, (a Milkwood tree)can be seen. The Maritime museum, housing a replica of Dias’s caravel and other treasures and the Shell Museum containing a large selection of local seashells are also within walking distance of the main complex.
You can also enjoy nearby activities including Bungy jumping, Game drives, Elephant rides, Hiking, Bird watching, or visit our Wildlife Sanctuary, housing White lions and White tigers, Black leopard, Jaguar, Cheetah and Puma, all of the big Cats! If you are keen on Golf, this is where you can enjoy your sport on our Top golf courses with the best seaviews you could ever imagine. If you feel lucky, you can try your luck at the local Casino.
Mossel Bay also hosts the world famous Buffalo Rally which provides lots of excitement.
Then there are the views which are ‘to die for’! The waves of the Indian Ocean, where in season you can spot dolphins and watch Humpback or Southern Right whales passing. The Outeniqua Mountains looms in the background and provides for the best Sunsets ever. Not to mention walking on the beach in the moonlight!

Did you know that according to the Guiness Book of Records Mossel Bay has the 2nd most temperate climate in the world after Hawaii? This charming small town with it's special climate is ideally situated at the beginning of the Garden Route almost half way between Port Elizabeth and Cape Town making it an ideal stopover.
There is plenty to do here, we have 2 Blue Flag beaches (one of which has small waves which makes it perfect for swimming and small children), good surfing, fishing, boat rides to seal island, whale watching (from July - November), shark-cage diving and scuba diving, walk the Oyster Catcher Trail along the coast from a Khoi San cave ending at the Gouritz River mouth, or take a helicopter flip over the town and bay (in season only). We have a lovely golf course where you can "see the sea from every tee", Bungee jumping, bridge swinging and abseiling are available half an hours drive, as well as elephant rides and game viewing 15 minutes away. Just over an hours drive from here there are the Cango Caves and Ostrich Farms in Oudtshoorn. Mossel Bay is also an
historical town, we have an excellent Museum Complex where there is a life-size replica of the Dias Caravel boat plus the Cultural Museum, the Shell Museum, the aquarium, and the 500 year old Post Office Tree from where you can still post a letter today. Watch artists at work at the Crafts Art Workshop, or go on a "Meet the people" Tour.
As if that wasn't enough we also have 3 shopping centres, one of the best private hospitals in the Western Cape, 2 gold medal butcheries, fresh fish daily and several good bars & restaurants.

Beautiful town, lovely beach destination, ideal as base to explore neighbouring towns and touristy places, and then come back to peaceful surrounds. Summertime will be busier than now, but MB also has a very temperate climate - winter and summer.

Very nice, cosy little seaside town with lots to see and do especially with kids. Loved the Diaz museum complex!
02 May 2012
Stayed three days in April with lovely weather. Found the area very interesting. Walked the beach/cliff path, drove the Swartzberg Pass and sunbathed on Santos Beach, our favourite. Would recommend 'The Gannet' restaurant as an eatery.
25 April 2012
Never want to leave after a stay! Such a relaxing place and so beautiful!
24 April 2012
I love Mossel Bay. There is so much to do here - beaches, wildlife, super-tubes, restaurants, boat trips, shopping, walks and so much more. Something for everyone, whatever your age.
04 April 2012
We went to Mossel Bay for shark diving, and it was fantastic. The village does not have much going on.
16 January 2012
I have been to Mossel Bay four times and each time was absolutely amazing. The Dias Museum is awesome and it's always developing.
30 December 2011
Not bad at all. There was a lot we could do during a brief stay. Will definitely visit again.
08 December 2011
Beautiful beaches, nature is abundant.

Enjoyed playing at Mossel Bay Golf Club and also enjoyed Pinnacle Point. There are great venues. I preferred playing Mossel Bay as it is certainly easier and just as spectacular.

Mossel Bay is a very underrated destination. It has lovely clean beaches, great places to stay, lovely restaurants and many craft shops. Definitely worth a visit.
22 August 2011
Mossel Bay has such a huge variety of activities, from relaxing on the beach to all-night partying at one of the local night clubs and bars. With hundreds of camping sites it's the perfect location for a family holiday by the sea.

We loved it. We were looking for a peaceful, laid-back destination and we found that in Mossel Bay. My teenage daughter passed a comment saying, "It feels so safe here." Suppose that says it all!
17 July 2011
Mosselbay is a wonderful holiday destination as it has a lot to offer. The restaurants are relatively cheap and the food outstanding. Very nice shopping centres and you will never have a boring moment. I found the fishing charters extremely expensive.
