We drove up and it was quite easy to reach, although parking is precarious. From the lighthouse the views of the surrounds are stunning. Well worth a visit. It is free, but to climb the tower costs R16.

We just walked on the beginning of the trail up to the lighthouse. The lighthouse is not open to the public, but it's worth the visit because of the wonderful views.

Husband is a keen lighthouse follower....so we have stayed at, or sighted most lighthouses on our SA coast. Staying over at Cape st Blaise is enchanting with beautiful vistas of the whole Mosselbay Bay area.

Tourists are not allowed to enter as it is fenced. You have to climb some uneven steps to go near to it. But view of India Ocean from top is amazing

It really worth to climb in front of the lighthouse, and to enjoy the view of the ocean, and of the huge waves, coming in slow motion towards the shore. The whole sea turns to be white from the breaking waves, while, if you are...More
