Lovely quiet beach

Two beaches really / one on the right as you drive there. And one more public in the village. Lovely views. Well worth a visit from Knysna

One of the best beaches by far
Jan 2020
It is always a great outing to go there. The restaurant also has great food. The parking can be a bit limited over the festive season and the beach crowded, but it is worth going there. Absolute bliss.

Nice Beach though open to wind

A nice nice beach, good for a sunbath, a bit open to wind though. Also has a restaurant there which helps if you want to spend the afternoon there

We love this beach when the wind and tide are good this has to be one of the best beaches for total chilling, great for surfing if surfs up great for wind surfing, sand karts all round a great place.
If it is windy it gets a bit rough and sand really blasts you then give it a miss for sun bathing

lovely Buffalo Bay
Feb 2020
We always love stopping here as you can park easily by the beach and watch the sea crash over the rocks.
There is a lovely beach to walk on and really surprising there are so few people enjoying this great beach

Beautiful beach
Dec 2019 • Couples
We had previous done Brenton beach on our previous visit so we decided to check out Buffalo bay beach. It was nice and clean. It was a bit crowded when we arrived so we decided not to swim and just had lunch there.

Beauty of Nature
Feb 2019 • Couples
I last went to Buffalo Bay after the fire devastation. I am pleased to say that Nature is fighting back. Hopefully all the right plants are growing to cove the black scenery. One day it will be back to its pristine beauty.
Very much worth a visit.
