When around the Knysna area, do not miss Brenton on Sea - clean and wide shoreline and great for a walk and paddling.

Stunning

Parked at bottom of Brenton and walked up to the other end where there was a little cafe.
The beach is wide with white sands and very few people about.Waves are stunning, fast and angry but its lovely to walk up the beach with that to see and hear.

We invited all our friends for a game of frisbee and a swim. It was amazing, secluded and simply beautiful. We all enjoyed the beautiful sunset that followed later that evening!

Largely rebuilt after the fires and a beautiful Long Beach for walking on. Nice quiet vibe and a good place to stay a few nights.

Breathtaking views,unbelievable self catering cottage
Feb 2020 • Couples
Spent one night at the Brenton on Sea self catering cottages with my family on our way back from Port Elizabeth. Situated in a secluded area just as you exit knysna coming from Port Elizabeth. Probably one of the best decisions we could have made as a family. The cottage was clean,neat and tidy. Very spacious. Had all the amenities required like a very clean fridge. stove and microwave together with utensils and crockery you can expect from a self catering facility. The view overlooking the ocean was absolutely breathtaking.A restaurant about 300m away served a variety of foods on their menu which was both good value for money and tasty. I would certainly go back for a longer stay and would recommend these cottages to anyone who is looking for peace and tranquility away from the mad rush of city life.

Beach for days
Dec 2019
This is a wonderful strip of beach and the closest to Knysna that is easy to get to and have a bit of a swim in. the beach stretches for a good long-distance and you can walk all the way to the other side, even though there are restaurants and shops on both sides it's a good idea to take something to drink and eat along the way as the summer sun can be quite harsh.
