Business name: Discovering The Point in Mossel Bay
CATEGORY:: Activities
Type: Sight-Seeing Excursions
About (Owner’s description): The Point a dramatic rocky point which is at the tip of the peninsula within central Mossel Bay. Rows of rocky reefs form a natural tidal pool known as Die Poort. For generations, the towns children have learned to swim in this pool where chains and ropes have been secured across the pool to assist swimmers when the surging tides cause strong currents to wash down the pool.

At the upper end of the pool there is a diving board over a deep pool with high rocks on the seaward side. This is Blougat (Blue Hole), a very deep pool, much deeper pool than the first, giving it a deep blue colour and thus its name. Here you can stroll for 3 kilometres along a walkway across the rocky coastline or venture on the 15-kilometre-long St Blaize hiking trail to Dana Bay.

The Point is also home to The Cape St. Blaize Cave an important archaeological site, and a popular point for whale and dolphin watching. It is situated in the cliffs below the Cape St Blaize Lighthouse. The building of the Cape St Blaize lighthouse was completed in March 1864.

The Mossel Bay War Memorial can also be found at The Point and is situated alongside the Point Hotel (St Blaize Cave). The monument is built on “Frog Rock”, so called because of the shape of the rock. It was a favourite play area for the young boys of the Mossel Bay at the time. The unveiling took place on Sunday, 28 th September 1924 by Major General Sir H. T. Lukin and was dedicated and consecrated by the Bishop of George. In 1954 the names of the casualties of the 1939 to 1945 conflict were added on a marble plaque.

The Point area also boasts several diverse restaurants - all with spectacular sea views of the Indian Ocean all within walking distance from each other. Fanta Sea at the Point offers locals and visitors to Mossel Bay the ultimate family entertainment their multitude of exciting activities such as our Toddler Play park, Jumping Castles, Putt-putt, Trampolines, Waterslides, Air balls, Water Volleyball and Skate park will keep you and your friends entertained for hours!
