A Haven Of Heritage

Witsand is known as one of the last unexploited places on the South African coastline and visitors now have the opportunity to stay for the weekend or even become a permanent resident at the newly relaunched, Breedezicht Estate.

Breedezicht Estate is situated at the mouth of the Breede River, only 300 kilometres from Cape Town Airport, and offers the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of city living. In the heart of the Overberg in the Western Cape, with white sand dunes and unspoilt beaches, is the small coastal town of Witsand. The estate offers a quality development to weekend guests or even homeowners, looking for a lifestyle investment.

Three hundred kilometres from Cape Town CBD, Witsand was once a bustling little town with a port where steamboats loaded goods destined for the Cape Town market. Today, Witsand boasts a variety of offerings, from its famous landmark of the Barry Memorial Church, built in 1849, to ruptured remains of steamships and the well-preserved little harbour.

Home to the endangered Cape Mountain zebra and Cape vulture, Witsand presents a rich diversity of fauna and flora. With over 260 bird species, the largest concentration of the endangered southern right whale and 3 000 hectares of undisturbed fynbos right on its doorstep, this old fishing village is an investor’s aspiration.

The Breede River is widely known as a fisherman’s retreat, supporting an abundance of fish from spotted grunter, steenbras, white and red stumpnose, leervis, and red roman to cob that weighs up to an impressive 50 kilograms.

Looking for something with a bit more adrenalin? Witsand is rated as one of the top kite surfing destinations in South Africa due to the perfectly flat lagoon, spaciousness and, of course, the onshore South Easter in the summer and the Westerly wind in the winter months. For more information.
