Welcome to Mossel Bay
Mossel Bay is situated halfway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, so right in the heart of the famous Garden Route. As a busy holiday town in summer and a peaceful place to stay in winter, Mossel Bay is placed on a spectacular peninsula surrounded by the warm Indian Ocean. In 1992, the Guinness Book of Records reported Mossel Bay as having ‘the second mildest climate in the world’ (first was a small town in Hawaii). But it is not only the weather – it is also the fascinating history of the town, which gives Mossel Bay the status of a historical main town of the Garden Route and one of the most significant towns in South Africa.
