With an average of 320 sunny days throughout the year, Mossel Bay has been featured in the Guinness Book of World Records as having the second most temperate climate in the world, after a small town in Hawaii. But this claim to fame is not the only reason why you should look forward to your visit at Perna Perna Mossel Bay.
As an ideal summer holiday destination and equally sublime winter holiday destination, Mossel Bay hits an outdoor enthusiast’s sweet spot. For all sportsmen – the surfing, shore and deep sea fishing, diving and snorkelling rate as world class in this unassuming destination, found along the spectacular Garden Route. Get your pulse racing with a bungee jump at Storms River Bridge – rated as the highest bungee jump in the world, shark cage diving or a day of power boating on the open waters of the Indian Ocean. On the other hand, take a drive and set up camp for the day on the golden sands at Boggomsbaai, for the perfect deserted beach escape.
Marvel at the views from your self-catering unit when visiting Perna Perna Mossel Bay, while soaking up the warm, local hospitality of this beautiful coastal town.
