Get active and experience our beautiful area on your bicycle.

The Black Oystercatcher is situated 27 km from Bredasdorp, 43 km from Struisbaai/LÁgulhas and 51 km from Gansbaai. And we offer great cycling opportunities on the farm and gravel tracks across the Agulhas Plain and into the Overberg. 

Black Oystercatcher Cycling Routes

When staying over in our cottages, or if you are just visiting for the day, try out our five cycling routes. All the Black Oystercatcher Cycling Routes begin at the Black Oystercatcher Wines. They’ll take you on tar tracks, and onto gravel farm roads – a wonderful way to get into gravel riding or to test your gravel biking skills.

Our Waterscapes

#Waterscapes: The natural wonder of the Agulhas Plain

You depend on water – it’s the basis of life. The same goes for the Black Oystercatcher. But – because of our unique setting, we depend on an intricate water network. We don’t just turn on a tap. We connect with a vast water system that must function fully.

Because our #waterscapes are at the heart of our existence, we’re highlighting these natural wonders of the Agulhas Plain. It’s a tribute to our corner of earth in the Overberg – and the life-giving systems you’ll find here.
