The ideal, very safe and peaceful holiday destination! Tired of the hustle and bustle, daily routine and the rat race of city life? Break away for a few days of peace and quietness, come to Vleesbaai seaside village! Situated at the western end of the well-known Garden Route, with untouched natural and sea surroundings and many kilometers of safe beach for walking and/or jogging and a very safe beach for swimming.
Fransmanshoek is a rocky peninsula and Nature Conservation Area about 4 km from Vleesbaai. Fransmanshoek (Frenchman) got its name from the wreck of the French ship, the "La Fortune" that stranded there in 1763. Vlees Bay was named in 1601 by a Dutch commander and the name originated from the days when Portuguese and Dutch sailors traded goods with the local inhabitants, most probably the "Khoikhoi", for meat and cattle. "Vlees" or "Vleis" is the Afrikaans / Dutch word for meat.
A fishing paradise for rock and surf fisherman and a well-known 4x4 route over the dunes. Our town faces northerly and easterly to the sea and therefore we have lovely sun and moon rising scenes over the ocean. Our moderate weather ensures that a visit to Vleesbaai will be very pleasant throughout the year.
The very well known Southern Right Whales with their calves are regular visitors to our bay from June / July to October / November each year and can be seen from our house with or without a pair of binoculars. Shoals of dolphins are regularly hunting in the bay or surfing the waves for fun.
A shop in town stocks daily necessities, from bread and milk to petrol and is within walking distance from our house. For the adventurer there are many tourist attractions within a radius of 3 to 100km like Fransmanshoek, Stilbaai, The Poort Wine Cellars, Ostrich and Crocodile farms, Knysna, George with world standard golf courses like Fancourt and others, Aloe factories at Albertinia, Bungi-jumping on the Gourits bridge and many more!
Vleesbaai is only a half-hour's drive from Mossel Bay with a lot of tourist attractions making a visit worthwhile. There are many restaurants (especially for seafood), a casino, two golf courses, 3 museums, the famous Posttree, deep-sea fishing, lots of shopping centres and much more to see and experience.
For offshore visitors to Vleesbaai and the Garden Route, the George Airport is only a 45 minute drive away where you can rent a car and enjoy an unforgettable holiday to the Garden Route and the Southern Cape.
