The harbour town of Mossel Bay on South Africa’s Garden Route is a happy mix of history, heritage and natural attractions centred on 60km (37mi) of sandy beaches, where you can swim, sail, surf, fish and walk year round. Adventurers can do shark cage dives, scuba dive, sky dive or take heli-flips. There’s also hiking, sandboarding, quad or mountain biking and horse riding. History buffs can visit the Bartolomeu Dias Museum Centre named for the Portuguese explorer who sailed around the southern tip of Africa in 1488.
