MOSSEL BAY

Mossel Bay is situated exactly half way between Cape Town - the provincial capital of the Western Cape Province – and Port Elizabeth (both 400 km away). This popular holiday town is surrounded by a sunbathed peninsula and the refreshing waters of the Indian Ocean. It is a busy summer destination as well as an ideal winter retreat. It is blessed with a mild climate all year round but its most important feature is its status as the historical capital of the Garden Route.
Site of the first landfall made by the Portuguese explorer Bartholomeu Dias in 1488 and today a popular holiday resort with fine beaches and much else to offer the tourist. The Batholomeu Dias Museum Complex comprises historical, maritime and shell museums. Launch trips are offered to nearby Seal Island with its noisy population of some 2,000 seals as well as gannets and cormorants.

 
 Mossel Bay has become the preferred holiday destination of local and international tourists alike and offers great fishing and safe swimming

  1. Kartki z tego wydawnictwa są piękne, Twoja również. Ale gdyby nie było napisane, że to RPA, to bym pomyślała, że to jakiś zakątek Stanów Zjednoczonych albo Australii ;)

    1. The Post Office Tree - to prawdopodobnie najstarsza skrzynka pocztowa na świecie, założona w r. 1500!
