The costal South African town of Witsand is home to pristine white beaches, dazzling wildlife, and, of course, lovely Witsand hotels. The town resides on the Breede River in the Western Cape of South Africa. The Breede River is one of the country’s largest navigated rivers and a certified bird watching haven. The town is often referred to as “the whale nursery of South Africa” because of the vast number of migrating whales scattered along the coastline. Between the months of June and November especially, you can view migrating whales from the town’s beaches. But if you want a closer look, there are multiple whale watching boat tours available.
Water sports are a favourite choice of activity for many visitors. In fact, a number of hotels in Witsand offer guests varied tours and water sport equipment. The town’s landscape also gives you plenty of outdoor opportunities like hiking, cycling, quad biking, and 4x4 riding.
Sandy white beaches are the norm in Witsand, not the exception. The coastal town has a roughly 4-kilometer stretch of beach surrounded by Cape Fynbos, a section of Cape Floral Kingdom, and home to a magnificent array of flora and fauna. The Cape is also considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
