Welcome to Barry's in Witsand...

Witsand is truly the home of the Southern Right Whale in Southern Africa. This peaceful coastal town is surrounded by two natural phenomena, the Breede River estuary and the Indian Ocean. The St Sebastian Bay houses the single largest winter migration population of Southern Right Whales. We offer fantastic land based whale watching to tourists that do not want to see boats amongst the whales.

We would love to introduce you to WITSAND / PORT BEAUFORT, our beautiful unspoilt village that so few people know about. Consider visiting us for a much needed break from the office, a longer stay to relax and unwind, or part of a conference or team building group keen to experience our fantastic outdoor activities in the area.
