De Bakke Beach, a relatively small, but extremely popular beach, is located to the west of Mossel Bay harbour, in close proximity to the De Bakke Municipal Chalet and Caravan Park. It is also within walking distance to Mossel Bay’s other Blue Flag Beach, Santos; lying just a kilometer or two outside of Mossel Bay's central business district.
It has a large secure public parking area, however many people like to simply walk to the beach from surrounding residential areas and the city centre.
The diverse sandy and rocky areas makes De Bakke popular for swimming, diving, snorkelling and surfing, and in season dolphins and whales frequently frolic in the bay and can be easily spotted, even without binoculars.
This safe swimming beach with its braai and ablution facilities, ensures a fun day in the sun for the whole family.
