Caves and St. Blaise Trail
This is a walk that starts at the caves under the light house, where you can also see dassies (rock hyrax). The caves were home to the first human inhabitants and they are an important archaelogical site.
The walk runs along the cliffs in the direction of Vlees Baai. It's a really nice walk on which you can sometimes see dolphins. Just be carefull of snakes!
A 65 mt jump at Gouritz.
This those who love the adrenalin rush should enjoy!

Please note: you are not allowed to stop your car ON this bridge to watch people jumping, there is a place where you can pull off the road., those who don’t jump and prefer to watch can take with a picnic basket.
Please check the web site for more info.
Situated in the southern Cape area of South Africa, Mosselbaai is one of the most beautiful coastal towns on the Garden Route. Long known as a quaint little fishing village waking up only at the start of the 'season' - when just about everyone from the interior would converge on the seaside for Christmas and the New Year celebrations - Mosselbaai has now grown into an all year round friendly holiday haven. First-class accommodation, shops crammed with curios and souvenirs, and mod cons to rival any found in the First World contrast delightfully with bare feet and vendors selling their wares on sidewalks in easy-going Africa mode. Structures built from dressed sandstone dating from the early days of the town stand side by side with modern architecture - some of outstanding quality, others not so much so. And the weather is tailormade to melt away those winter woes...
Mossel Bay is where the first Europeans landed in Southern Africa nearly 500 years ago.
Places of interest include the Milkwood tree~ The first "Post Office" in South Africa,the Bartolomeu Dias Museum Complex,which houses the Dias Caravelle, a replica of Bartolomeu Dias's ship,the Sea Shell Museum, the Hartenbos Museum,the Harry Giddey Park ,and the Cape St Blaize Cave.
The Point, at the tip of Cape st Blaize, is an ideal location to view whales, dolphins and seals at play or swim in the safe tidal pool.
The St Blaize hiking trail is 13.5 km long ,along rugged cliffs with spectacular views.
The town also offers an indigenous garden and braille trail,where a Fynbos garden can be observed, touched and smelt.
Seal Island in the bay is the home of countless seals.
