Welcome to Shell Cottage in Witsand 

Overlooking the Breede River 1km upstream from the mouth at Witsand.

Wit sand is situated at the mouth of the Breede River. It is a holiday destination with a difference, situated 300km from Cape Town and 200km from George along the Garden Route.

The Breede River is one of the largest most navigatable rivers in South Africa and is rich in diverse species of fish and bird life. It is recognized as one of the best fishing estuaries in the country with tidal action that reaches 60km upstream.

The river is also ideally suited to a range of water sports. Rock anglers can also have good catches along the coast line.

Fly fisherman will really enjoy this river. Please note that catch and release is strongly encouraged.
