If you feel like being adventurous do the St.Blaze hiking trail as it has the most spectacular view of the ocean and leads you straight to the light house

Only did a bit of the trail but wished we had done the whole thing. If you're used to walking on rough ground you'll be fine. Cave, some interesting information about stone age archaeology and nice restaurants at what I presume is the end...

we live on the golf estate next to the trail. My wife and I walk this trail on a regular basis and it is safe. If you are in Mossel Bay, contact me and we will walk with you, it is very beautiful.

The trail starts at the St Blaize cave (underneath the lighthouse). You can turn back whenever you want, or go all the way to either Pinnacle Point Golf Club, or Dana Bay.
