2 min read

If you’ve been thinking that beach vacations are only meant for the summer, do we have a surprise for you! Mossel Bay is the ideal location for your winter holiday and De Bakke Santos offers the perfect accommodation. If you need convincing, here are 5 reasons to visit Mossel Bay this winter.

Mild Climate

Despite it being winter, Mossel Bay has a mild climate. This makes it a comfortable place to visit and explore during the colder months. It allows you to enjoy the outdoors to its full extent (just throw on a jacket!) and make the indoors as snug and cosy as possible.

Whale Watching

The annual migration of Southern Right Whales occurs along the South African coastline during the winter. While they travel all along the coast, Mossel Bay is a prime location for whale watching. You can do so either from De Bakke Santos, where you can spot these majestic creatures from the shoreline, or you can take a boat tour to get a closer look.

Outdoor Activities

Mossel Bay is known as the adventure capital of South Africa, and this does not change in winter. Our town and the surrounding areas offer a variety of outdoor activities that can be enjoyed all year around. This includes hiking, cycling, and water sports, like surfing, windsurfing, and canoeing.

Festivals and Events

Various festivals and events also take place during the colder months in Mossel Bay. This includes the Dias Festival, Garden Route International Film Festival, the Mossel Bay Makiti, and the Hartenbos Seefront Winter Festival. All these events provide the best opportunity to experience the local culture and arts and have fun.

Lower Prices

Winter is considered the off-season for Mossel Bay. Not only is the town clear of the summer crowds, but many tourist attractions, activities, accommodations, and tours will offer lower prices. We surely do! Check out the Specials page for De Bakke Santos to read all about our winter deals.
