Bartholomeu Dias Museum Mossel Bay


The valley and beach adjacent to the museum complex is today known as Munro’s Bay. This area is a natural garden preserving the original vegetation of the Mossel Bay area. Milkwood and Wild Olive trees are the most common tree species to be seen. This peaceful environment offers magnificent views of the bay and the site where Dias landed over 500 years ago.
