Cape St. Blaize Lighthouse (Mosselbay)

A well-known lighthouse, the Cape St. Blaize tower is situated within the urban perimeters of the harbour and tourist town of Mosselbay in the Southern Cape on the N2 national route. The lighthouse is accessible to the public during certain visiting hours. You can drive up the hill towards the site, although it can be difficult finding the correct road first time! You have some stunning views from the top at the lighthouse's deck - the whole of Mosselbay and the deep blue waters of the Southern Cape. The cliffs surrounding the lighthouse is fantastic. The light saw first operations in 1864. An impressive structure well worth the visit. This photo was taken in March 2005 upon my first visit to the lighthouse.
