Lorraine is the fifth generation of Barrys that started Port Beaufort – a small fishing village which oozes historical value and charm. She would love to tell you more and show you the Barry Memorial Church, a national monument built in 1859.
Witsand is THE whale nursery of South Africa, as the largest concentration of Southern Right Whales come to our bay each year to calve. In 2006 stats read that 141 whales were counted on one day by aerial survey. This number included 69 calves! The highest ever! Whale season is July to November and a must see! Only land based whale watching – Limited disturbance by boats. We are the distributors of “The Whale Induna” video.
Kite boarders have also discovered Witsand big time. Stunning natural beauty and many casual hikes to choose from. “Plan to visit us at the same time.”
