The cave at Cape St Blaize, below Mossel Bay’s lighthouse, is the site of some of South Africa’s first Middle Stone Age archaeological excavations. More recently, parts of the cave were explored by scientists as part of the Mossel Bay Archaeology Project, which was also conducting excavations at Pinnacle Point Site Complex. Information boards on-site illustrate the history of the site and its importance in the history of archaeology.
The cave is open to the public and there is no access fee. It is a short walk from the Mossel Bay Waterfront and provides beautiful views of the ocean. It is also located at the beginning of the Cape St Blaize Trail, a 13.5km trail which joins Mossel Bay and Dana Bay and which also crosses the Pinnacle Point Estate.
