Vleesbaai village is situated 35 km west of Mossel Bay, tucked up against the gentle slopes of the hills above the south-western corner of the bay of Vleesbaai. Boasting a pristine beach and superb natural environment with sunshine weather all year round, this exceptional beach village offers a fine lifestyle with secure living and care-free holidays second to none. Its history can be traced back to the late forties of the twentieth century when landowners began to make stands available to family and friends to build small holiday dwellings, giving Vleesbaai its  quaint and old-fashioned character. Later developments provided for more modern and graceful homes.

Most homes in Vleesbaai have beautiful views of the sea and mountain ranges to the north. From your lounge you will be able to see whales in the bay, dolphins surfing waves, fishing boats seeking shelter against storms, and surfers surfing  awesome waves that stormy conditions bring. Winter mornings will treat you with memorable orange-red sunrises over the sea. Being part of the Fransmanshoek Conservancy ensures that wildlife is abundant in and around Vleesbaai. The scenery along the coast to nearby Fransmanshoek peninsula is exquisite, especially when enormous waves break on formidable rock formations during rough seas. Activities such as swimming, surfing, canoeing, snorkelling, hiking, biking, fishing and 4×4 dune driving provide endless enjoyment for adventurous holiday-makers.

People that visit Vleesbaai usually fall in love with the family-friendly environment and the exciting seaside holidays Vleesbaai has to offer. As a private beach village, Vleesbaai is managed and maintained by its own utility company. Service delivery is of the best and this ensures carefree stays in Vleesbaai.
