Mossel Bay lies at the western end of South Africa’s famous Garden Route holiday strip, where the Outeniqua Mountains overlook old-growth forests, beaches and lagoons. The town is one of the Garden Route’s most popular holiday centers, especially during the busy summer season. What can visitors to Mossel Bay do and what should they expect in summer?
The Garden Route is a 200km/120mi-long strip of beaches, bays, lagoons and inviting tourist towns, running up the Indian Ocean from Mossel Bay to Storms River. The coastline is only part of its charm. Adventurous activities can also be had exploring the thick forests and dramatic river valleys of the Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma Mountains. Thanks to the balmy waters of the Mozambique Current, the region has a blissful microclimate that is the world’s mildest after Hawaii.
Guests can be assured that they will never get bored while staying at The Bay Lodge , young to old and even pets, there's something to do for everyone. The Bay Lodge is situated directly on the beach, approximately 15 minutes from Mossel Bay and 5 minutes from Hartenbos, where there is a lot to do throughout the year.
