Mossel Bay is undoubtedly the most desirable sea-side town in South Africa.

Mossel Bay – at 34° 10’48.35″ South, 22° 8′ 34.34″ East – has the most moderate climate in the country, with more than 320 days of sunshine, and glorious summers and mild winters that ensure beach-going weather throughout the year.

And – as if these blessings aren’t enough –  there’s also the warm Indian Ocean and miles and miles of untouched sandy beaches. And this means, of course, that the swimming, scuba diving, surfing, sailing, angling, and deep sea fishing are all superb!

Mossel Bay is situated on the Garden Route – a beautiful, mountainous area of the south-east coast of South Africa – close to Plettenberg Bay and Knysna, and exactly half way (400 km) between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. George Airport, which services all of the major cities such as Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban and Port Elizabeth with daily and regular flights, is situated 40 kilometer from Mossel Bay and within 20 minutes driving from the town.

Mossel Bay has two famous championship golf courses: Pinnacle Point Golf Estate and Mossel Bay Golf Club (the home course of the young 2010 British Open champion, Louis Oosthuizen, and the course where you can ‘see the sea from every tee.”). And there are more than sixteen other world-class golf courses within an hour’s drive of Mossel Bay, too – which is why everyone calls the Garden Route “Africa’s Mecca of Golf.”

Mossel Bay has many other attractions, too – Big Five experiences less than 30 minute’s drive from the CBD; mountain bike trails, hiking trails, and off-road and 4×4 courses; whale watching and shark cage diving; and all the excitement of the dramatic, enigmatic, and ever-present Outeniqua Mountains.

Mossel Bay is the fastest growing town on the Garden Route, and, as a favourite destination for both holiday makers and investors in real estate, it has 21st century infrastructure with sophisticated shopping, great schools, and world class medical care (it boasts the Western Cape’s largest and most advanced private hospital outside of the Cape Metropole).

Mossel Bay became the site of the first European landing on South Africa soil when Bartolomeu Dias visited here in 1488. And here he found fresh water, and bought meat, vegetables, and fruit from the locals. Later, in 1500, a mail depot was established here when an old shoe was tied to the milkwood tree that’s now Mossel Bay’s most popular tourist attraction: the Old Post Office Tree.

And ever since Mossel Bay became a port of call for ships and sailors who wanted to exchange mail as they travelled between Europe and the Far East, it’s been welcoming people like you and me.
