West Camp: The first camp as you enter Witsand is ideally situated for those who want to be close to the Breede River Mouth as well as the Blue Flag beach. The Breede has the widest river mouth in South Africa and is ideally suited for a range of water activities, the most loved one here being of course kiting! International kite surfers have been amazed by this place as it provides favourable conditions for practicing tricks. They love to come here during summer for the wind and are always pleasantly surprised with the lack of crowds in these parts, something we take for granted! Other water sports like SUPing is also popular and before we forget, fishing! Fishing on the Breede goes hand in hand and the stories you’ll hear around this favourable past time will leave you intrigued.
Middle Camp: This camp is situated on the eastern end of Witsand right on the beach and offers amazing fishing opportunities from the sand as well as rocks. There is a little tidal pool for swimming and the Blue Flag beach is also walking distance. Towards the east you can walk for many kilometers, making this an ideal retreat if you want to escape for a bit. Of course one of the major drawcards are the whales during winter. The Southern Right Whales flock to St. Sebastian Bay (which is in front of the campsite) each year from July to November to calve in the calm waters and provides breathtaking land-based viewing. Come see for yourself why Witsand is called THE whale nursery of Southern Africa.
