Mossel Bay have four WESSA blue flag beaches. We are very proud and happy that Santos beach, De Bakke beach, Hartenbos beach and Klein Brakrivier beach are all part of this prestigious group of beaches in South Africa. Glentana received pilot status for 2018/2019.
The greater Mossel Bay is home to no less than sixty kilometres of long, sandy beaches as well as beach-going weather throughout the year. There is also plenty of beach stuff to do in Mossel Bay like swimming, sailing, surfing, fishing and walking. Feel like 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).
