About Cape St Blaize Lighthouse

Mossel Bay lies on the other side of the protruding peninsula of Cape St Blaize, a rocky headland that has long been a danger to ships at night. This dramatic spot houses the elegant white Victorian lighthouse that still functions as a beacon to navigators.

Built in 1864, Cape St Blaize Lighthouse was one of the only two lighthouses manned 24 hours daily on the South African Coastline. Until the late 1970s a clockwork system turned the lens and required a lighthouse keeper to wind it up every three hours.

Now fully automated, a team of lighthouse keepers are still employed to keep a constant radio watch and undertake regular meteorological duties.

Open to visitors Monday to Friday from 10:00 – 12:00 and again from 12:30 – 15:00, closed on weekends and public holidays.
