The story behind the image

Mossel Bay in South Africa is a fantastic place for a vacation as it combines many benefits in one place. Situated right at the Indian Ocean it has both a steep rocky coastline (to the west) where powerful waves keep clashing relentlessly, as well as calm, smooth, and sandy, beaches (to the east). What’s more, it has a good touristic infrastructure without being overly busy.

When you take the St Blaize Hiking Trail you will experience the beauty of the rocky shoreline. The moderate trail begins right under the Cape St Blaize Lighthouse at the St Blaize Cave. Awesome.
