Tour Guide Tips and Information: Station 7

Read the Point Area Story on the pedestal or below.

Station 7 is located in the middle of the Mossel Bay Point Area. The attractions in this area can easily keep you entertained for a whole day. The area was designed thousands of years ago for fun and relaxation. The Point Beach area is located to the north with the tidal pool, sandy beach, coastal benches, children play ground and several restaurants. The ocean to the east of the station is one of Mossel Bay’s favorite surf spots. To the south and west various tourist related activities like the Mossel Bay Zipline, Put-Put, food vendors, children playground, restaurants, coffee shops, outdoor gym and sea side activities are available. The Poort a natural formed tidal pool has been a favorite swimming area in Mossel Bay for years, this is a must do. Remember to take a photo at the extra-large Mossel Bay photo frame.

THE POINT AREA

Mossel Bay has always been a popular holiday destination and The Point has always been the place where the community gathers to enjoy the sights, sounds and news of Mossel Bay. The Point Common, a bequest made to the town for use by residents, has been used as a recreational area since 1875. Casual camping prevailed from the late 1930s but by the 1950s more formal camping facilities were provided.

Both residents and visitors find time to visit The Point, a highly evocative place where fingers of ancient rock reach into a restless ocean. This popular recreation space identifies Mossel Bay as a town bordered by the ocean to both the north and south. Early-mornings or late afternoons see joggers and strollers using The Point as a ritual exercise destination – where they keep their eyes peeled for friends, surfers, seals, dolphins, whales and ships sailing into the bay.

Nature was supremely creative when it sculptured this perfect sea pool with its natural gullies. The Poort, as this glorious pool is known, is acknowledged as one of the safest and largest natural rock pools in the world. The rocky walls protect swimmers from the rough waves crashing close-by. Recreation around the Point includes surfing, restaurants, coffee shops, food trucks, an outdoor gym, a children’s play area, a zipline and many more.

Suggestion… stop reading and take a breather, relax, and celebrate life by enjoying the adventures in, around and over the ocean – or simply bask in the tranquility and splendour of the views.

To the next station

Cross Point Road turn left or follow the shoreline to proceed south around the bend along the paved walkway to Station 8 (240 m). Do not miss out on all the tourist related activities, amenities, food, coffee, ice cream and other vendors. Make sure you enjoy the full Mossel Bay Point experience which means you will have to eat, drink and participate in at least one activity.
