Fun Activities For Kids In Mossel Bay
2 min read
Mossel Bay is a great family vacation spot with lots to do for all members, from youngest to oldest. Kids can spend days playing in the sun and swimming in the sea, but the coastal town also has other fun activities to offer.
Diaz Waterpark is one of those places that is fun and exciting no matter what age you are. The water park is just down the road from De Bakke Santos, and kids can enjoy various super tubes, water rides, and a heated swimming pool. The park also looks out over Diaz beach, meaning you can run for the waves once you’ve had your fun on the rides!
Blasters Family Entertainment Centre
Blasters has been the go-to on rainy days for years. The family restaurant is complete with a massive play area, glow-in-the-dark mini golf, arcade games, and pool tables. While the kids are playing and the teens are competing in a game of pool, the rest of the family can enjoy a delicious meal. Blasters also shows whatever sports game is on that day, making it a great location for rainy weekends.
Dragon Dune Sandboarding offers a three-hour long adrenaline rush, with the biggest and longest sandboarding ride in South Africa. There are three different rides you can try, varying in difficulty and length: Baby Dune (100 metres), Big-Boy Dune (180 metres), and Dragon Dune (350 metres). The location offers beautiful views of the ocean, with dolphins and whales sometimes being spotted. This is a good activity if you have older kids and teenagers.
The Garden Route is home to amazing fauna and flora, with game lodges capturing the best of both worlds. They make for excellent day trips for the whole family. Here are some of our recommendations, with the recently opened Western Cape Butterfly Sanctuary being a favourite.
