The St Blaize Trail in Mossel Bay


The St. Blaize Trail is a popular 13.5 km (6 hour) hike that follows the 30 metre contour along the cliffs westwards from the Cape St. Blaize Lighthouse. It begins at the Cave below the Lighthouse, and ends at Dana Bay (you can walk it in either direction), and is marked with the sign of an oystercatcher bird. The trail offers dramatic sea views, excellent whale and dolphin watching, good birding, and interesting fynbos. It is a moderately difficult walk that requires a reasonable degree of fitness. Carry water, use hats and sun-block, and exercise caution in wet weather, high winds, and mist. Exits and escape routes are situated far from the main roads and the town centre. Beware of snakes (especially puff adders) and flying golf balls in the area where the trail crosses the Pinnacle Point Golf Course.
