Great views, many different animals to see. Medium practice necessary. The golf club is a good place to have a drink afterwards and to order a taxi (+27-82-932-5809) back.

This walk is a must do when visiting Mossel Bay. The trail does NOT start at the light house but in a car park below. The initial steps have hand rails but they stop at the top so there is no restriction along the trail...More

Beautiful hike all along the coast - stunning views, trail has guards, so felt safe. Transport to 2 points just takes some planning.

13.5 km trail on the cliffs overlooking the sea. Some fitness needed. Ensure you arrange for transport on the other end except if you intend going back for another 13.5 km. Taking a taxi back to Delvino's/Mossel Bay will set you back R150. No entrance...More

You have to give this hike a try! The views are truly amazing. You would encounter dassies, dophins and even whales in season! Be sure to carry water and snacks. The section between the pinnacle golf course and Dana bay is poorly marked, we used...More

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

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.
