It is also an ideal swimming spot with 4km of unspoilt beach leading to well known Moodie's Well. Parents with small children prefer the calm swimming areas along the river's banks and can also enjoy canoeing trips and river cruises.


This area has the highest concentration of Southern Right Whales on the South African Coast with sightings between the months of June and October. You can spot the whales form the Whale Watching Tower or take a fun tour on the back of a tractor!


The Breede River is the largest river estuary in the country and provides a home to many different bird species. With its abundant wildlife, fishing and water-activities Witsand could possibly lay claim to being the perfect summer holiday!
