Beach in Mossel Bay
Beach in the Mossel Bay Area
All along the Mossel Bay shore there are beaches sprinkled among the rocks. Even at the very Point of Cape Saint Blaize there is a sandy channel set between two rocky ridges that has long been treated by locals as the town swimming pool – known as the “Poort”.
Mossel Bay’s Blue Flag Beaches – Mossel Bay have five WESSA blue flag beaches. We are very proud and happy that Santos beach, De Bakke beach, Hartenbos beach, Glentana and Klein Brakrivier beach are all part of this prestigious group of beaches in South Africa.
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.
