Geography and History

Witsand is situated on the Southern coast of the Western Cape Province of South Africa.  Witsand is well - known as the “Whale Nursery of South Africa” and is a popular, tranquil seaside resort town with unspoilt beaches and a small harbour.  Witsand is situated at the mouth of the Breede River, 300km from Cape Town along the Garden Route, making it the perfect halfway stop between Cape Town and Knysna.  Take the turnoff just outside Heidelberg on the N2 and drive 37km along a tarred road to the town of Witsand.

Activities

Being the “Whale Nursery of South Africa”, Witsand offers fantastic whale watching opportunities! This area has the largest concentration of Southern Right whales to be found in a single bay -  every year between July and November.  Witsand boasts the first Whale Watching Tower on the Garden Route. Land based whale watching is also great with over a 100 whales in the bay in one day, sometimes as close as 100 metres from the shore!

Other activities in Witsand include the fishing along the Breede River as well as rock fishing along the beach.

Water sports such as swimming, surfing, windsurfing, river cruises, canoeing, sailing, spear-fishing, snorkelling and skiing can all be enjoyed. Water-skiing on the Breede River is allowed beyond the 5D-mark, where the Slang River flows into the Breede River, towards Malgas.
