Mossel Bay have 3 out of the 23 Blue Flag Beaches in the Western Cape. We are proud and happy to announce that De Bakke Beach, Hartenbos Beach and Klein Brak Beach are all part of this prestigious group of beaches in South Africa.
Other than that, we have very popular beaches in the form of Santos Beach, Diaz Beach, Great Brak River Beach and Glentana Beach.
No less than sixty kilometres of long, sandy beaches – and beach-going weather throughout the year.
There’s plenty of beach stuff to do in Mossel Bay – stuff like swimming, surfing, fishing, and walking. But doing nothing at all? That’s what everyone likes best at the beach. Especially on beaches like ours.
What is a Blue Flag Beach?
A Blue Flag is an international award given to beaches, boats and marina’s that meet EXCELLENCE in the areas of safety, amenities, cleanliness and environmental standards. The strict criteria of the programme are set by the international coordinators of the Blue Flag campaign in Europe, the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).
