Total peace,calm & serenity, white sandy beaches,barely no waves just a hint of surf.
Lot's of restaurants & bars around, great friendly environment with beautiful people all round.
Safe and secure with locker rooms, showers and snacks on the beach.
A tropical Island feel, i'll be back.

What a great beach to spend the day at. Santos beach was great today, with little or no wind. The relatively calm waves is great for the little one. We visited the nearby ice cream vendor and enjoyed two large and one small sugar cones for less than R50.00. The beach has two toilet facilities and occassional life savers patrolling. Along the grassy areas are the ideal picnic spots including beach lapas. There is ample parking and also overnight accomodation from the nearby guest houses.

In the near distance you can view the Dias museum and the harbour.

Santos is one of the two beaches closest to town centre. There is plenty to do on the beach and there are eating places nearby. The current is less harsh at santos but still one must take care and observe all weather warnings.

Certainly one of the best portion of beaches in Mosselbaai. Super clean, calm turquoise waters, shark nets, a real family beach. A big bonus is the thatch umbrellas to lounge under. Nice and quiet and accessible out of season, but a nightmare in peak season.

What a smashing beach 🏖 this is. Very quiet on a Monday. We had a tender trip from Azamara cruise ship. Lucky 🍀 us, as we got to stay overnight too

Very safe and quite, with a selection of restaurants only a stone throw away...

If your lucky you will also spot some whales...

A beautiful and peaceful beach. Within walking distance to the restaurants at the harbour and the Jackal on the Beach restaurant situated right on the sand at the beach. Ample parking space, showers and ablution facilities provided. A great beach for children and adults alike with the calm waters of the bay providing a great swimming experience. Thatched umbrellas provide shade for those wanting to spend time or have a picnic on the grass area on the one side of this beautiful beach. Clean soft sand makes this beach a gem.
