Mossel Bay. Do stuff!

Welcome to the Garden Route, and to South Africa’s Do Stuff Destination.

More than 60 kilometres of beaches - and warm, beach-going weather throughout the year (with at least 300 days of sunshine in every 365!); The riches of the Indian Ocean, the Cape fynbos, and the Outeniqua Mountains; Culture that stretches back over 164,000 years; 21st century infrastructure; and accommodation for every budget.

Mossel Bay is situated exactly half way between Cape Town - the provincial capital of the Western Cape Province – and Port Elizabeth (both 400 km away), so it’s your ideal holiday destination, and the logical place to stop and relax on any local itinerary.

But it won’t all be relaxing – because there really are so many things to do here.

We hope you enjoy browsing our site - so many adventures, so many attractions! – and that we’ll see you soon in Mossel Bay.
