About St Blaize Hiking Trail
The St Blaize Hiking Trail is a wonderfully scenic combination of craggy coastline, interesting caves and rock formations, sweeping ocean views and pretty fynbos.
Starting at the Khoi San Cave at The Point, it follows the coastline for 13.5 km to Dana Bay and usually takes about 4 hours at a moderate pace.
The trail has recently been upgraded and is a comfortable walk along a contour path and through fine stands of coastal fynbos. Along the way there are a few spots for a cooling swim in rock pools or a small sandy beach.
On a good day the views from the path are spectacular and you have a good chance of spotting whales, dolphins and even sharks in the water below. Peak whale watching season is from June to October and dolphins can be seen all year round.
Arrange transport from Dana Bay unless you are up for a mega hike and return along the trail back to The Point. Children should be accompanied by adults. Some of the sections are fairly exposed and care should be taken on steep sections. Watch out for waves at the sea caves and rocky sections of this rugged shoreline. Avoid hiking this trail in high winds. Obtain a map and directions from Mossel Bay Tourism - corner of Market & Church Street (near the harbour), +27 (0) 44 691 2202.
