I Love Mossel Bay because …

I ♥ Mossel Bay

I ♥ Mossel Bay

Hi, I’m  Petra du Toit from Linkside2 Guest House in Mossel Bay in the Garden Route.

MOSSEL BAY IS BEST KNOWN FOR its moderate climate, beautiful white beaches and the Dias Museum.

GET YOUR PICTURE TAKEN AT the Post office Tree, because of its historical Value and you can still mail your postcards from there.

THE BEST SUNRISE PICTURES CAN BE TAKEN AT The Point early in the morning, breathtakingly beautiful!

OTHER HAPPY SNAPS AT Linkside2 with the most beautiful view of the bay, mountains and the town …

WHEN THE WEATHER’S GOOD, I LIKE TO go to Santos beach … blue flag status.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S BAD, I LIKE TO shop at Langeberg Mall …

I THINK THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO VISIT IS February, March, April and then again from October to December. The weather on the Garden Route is also stunning during our winter season.

MY FAVOURITE BREAKFAST SPOT IS is Linkside2 or the Point.

FOR LUNCH, I SUUGEST Fynbos Coffee Shoppe.

MY FAVOURITE RESTAURANT IS Jazzburry, try the Ostrich Fillet.



FOR A NIGHT OUT ON THE TOWN TRY try Kingfisher or a night club … (more for the younger set though).

IF YOU WANT TO MEET LOCALS, GO TO Kingfisher or Delfinos.

MOSSEL BAY’S BEST KEPT SECRET IS our unspoilt beaches and Mossel Bay has the lowest crime rate in South Africa.

MY FAVOURITE THING TO DO WITH FRIENDS IS TO go to a good restaurant. Stonehill and Jazzbury are excellent!

FOR SOME CULTURE I LIKE TO go on a Tour with Back Road Safaris. They offer individual and group tours across a variety of tastes, including cultural exchanges and special-interest activities like golf, whale watching or wine tasting.


IF YOU’RE FEELING ADVENTUROUS, TRY Shark diving or Skydiving.

MY FAVOURITE WALK / HIKE IS Cape St. Blaize and the Oyster Catcher Trail.

MY FAVOURITE GIFT SHOP IS Fynbos Shoppe, named for the wide variety of indigenous Fynbos and flower products from the local area. People visit from afar to experience this haven of hand made gifts and crafts.

MY FAVOURITE MUSEUM IS the Dias Museum. Check out the life-size replica of Dias’s ship.

TRAVELLING WITH CHILDREN? A FUN OUTING IS Jukani Wildlife and water world at Dias beach. Jukani Wildlife Sanctuary is home to the big cats such as lions, cheetahs, Bengal tigers, leopard (spotted and black), jaguar, pumas, caracal and serval cats and other wildlife species.

BEST CHEAP AND CHEERFUL OUTING IS going to Santos or Dias beach.

WHEN MONEY’S NO OBJECT, I LIKE TO dine at Stonehill Restaurant. The food is Provencal and Mediterranean inspired with a modern South African twist and this is supported by the most comprehensive winelist.

THE MOST UNUSUAL THING I SEE HERE IS the North facing views over the mountains and the bay.

MY FAVOURITE WEEKEND GETAWAY IS to Botlierskop Game farm, a well stocked, free roaming private game reserve in the Garden Route.

WHEN I WANT TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY, I sponsor the Mossel Bay Care Centre. The care centre is responsible for regularly supplying food to the learners of Ridgeview Primary School, providing monthly food packages to elderly citizens as well as running the Kiddies Corner Creche.

MOSSEL BAY’S MOTTO IS … No hurry. No worries. In a town where the constant, rhythmic hush of the sea is the undertone that fills the day, the Mossel Bay promise is effortlessly kept. And while the sea is without a doubt one of the greatest attractions of Mossel Bay, it is only one of them!

I Love Mossel Bay because of the friendly people and the low crime rate. Mossel Bay is a working town.
