The closest wine wine estate to Mossel Bay, they don't grow their own, but rather source the juice and ferment it on site. The venue has a comedy club called the Barn Theater, an extensive bar area and a restaurant with outdoor seating. They serve typical portuguese bar food like Rissole's, Prego steak rolls and Feijaoda.

Delfinos has been around for years, it has one of the best locations in Mossel Bay and is rather popular, in saying that, like most touristy places, this can be hit and miss sometimes. Expect to experience poor service and poor quality of food.

The Famous Otter trail is one of the roughest and toughest Hikes in the world that takes you about a week to complete if you adhere to the strict time limit, even if you're not going to take part in it, do go for the day for the views of Storms River mouth, treetop zip lining and river kayaking. This is our favourite National Park in South Africa.
