Witsand is truely the home of the Southern Right Whale .This peaceful coastal town is surrounded by the Breede River estuary and the Indian Ocean. The St Sebastian Bay houses the single largest winter migration population of Southern Right Whales. These gentle giants may either be viewed from the coast line or through a local boat based whale watching operator.
Witsand is a popular sea-side resort as it offers a multitude of water sports. - safe bathing, windsurfing, rock and surf angling, river angling, deep sea fishing, snorkel diving and spear fishing, whale watching, water-skiing, etc. It has a 4km long unspoilt beach, leading to the well-known Moodie's Well. It has a clean, white beach (hence Whitesands) with safe swimming spots for days in the sun. Parents with smaller children also prefer the calm swimming spots along the river.
Witsand is easily reached from the N2 by a well tarred road
