Breede River Resort


About Breede River Resort

The resort is situated at the mouth of the Breede River. Come and experience the friendly village life that offers food for the soul and a place to simply relax and unwind from the busy city life.

We offer various types of accommodation, for example, luxury non-self-catering waterfront rooms; luxury self-catering waterfront units; standard self-catering units; studio apartments; fisherman rooms and backpacker rooms. All the units are privately owned and are rented out by a management agent.

Most of the units have DSTV and are self-catering with coffee making facilities. Self-catering units do not have condiments, guests to bring their own. Some units have indoor braai facilities and communal braai areas are open to all guests. No wood may be used in communal areas, only charcoal is permitted due to the thatch roofs being a fire hazard. Certain units have air conditioners.

The resort offers a swimming pool, exclusively for the use of our guests.

Witsand offers 4km of white sandy beaches, surrounded by magnificent species of this Cape Fynbos Floral Region Heritage Site. Witsand is a popular resort for fishermen and other holidaymakers. It offers magnificent views on the estuary against the backdrop of the Potberg to the West. Visitors are often standing in awe when they gaze across the wide river mouth over the bay. The tidal flow of the river and the sheer beauty of the area create unequalled tranquility and peacefulness to the surroundings. It is a paradise to residents and visitors alike. For those interested in ecology, the dynamic interphase between river and ocean, the geological structures, the Fynbos and duineveld flora and the abundant animal life could prove to be worthwhile study objects.

Witsand is known as the whale nursery of South Africa due to the Southern Right Whale coming to our shores to calve yearly. We do not allow whale watching by boat due to the bay being the nursery.
