Mossel Bay is a coastal town on the Garden Route, showcasing the Western Cape and proving to be a more and more popular holiday destination for visitors from around the world. It has more than 60 kilometres of beautiful beaches, which are best enjoyed in the excellent weather that this part of South Africa enjoys for much of the year.

De Bakke Beach is a special attraction for Mossel Bay, albeit small and relatively quiet. In fact, it is one of the country’s esteemed Blue Flag beaches. This is a well respected award that takes the educational, environmental and cultural value of the beach into account, ensuring that each Blue Flag beach is one that is not only beautiful and safe, but also environmentally and socially responsible.

De Bakke is an ideal beach for swimming, making it perfect for families with children. However, it is also a great water sports beach. Surfing and canoeing are popular activities here, and the two reefs that flank the beach offer wonderful snorkelling opportunities. These reefs also make for the perfect fishing spot, while the views of the Indian Ocean create an idyllic backdrop. During the second half of each year, visitors will be able to spot whales as they skirt the shoreline and entertain onlookers with their antics.

The beach has rocks and grassy patches to facilitate easier strolls, as well as great spots for picnics and romantic retreats. The campground and caravan park are equipped with an ablution block and promise visitors a rustic, hands on experience of the delight that is South Africa.
