A lovely beach with lifeguards in season. The restaurant on the beach is lovely for a drink, child friendly and casual, but just basic food with a shop, so don't expect great food!

Watch the ocean out on the open deck. Try to spot a whale or dolphin. Meals are a basic set menu. Their breakfast is good

This beach is truly the jewel of the Garden Route beaches. Safe, spacious and clean. You can see, and walk for miles.

We called in here for a brief visit but ended up having a good pizza in a 'tacky' little cafe before walking half way to Brenton and back. There were very few people around and it was a lovely relaxing afternoon.

We loved spending the day on this beach, safe to play for kids. There is only one restaurant on the beach and the food could be much better, but for a nice day on the beach, it's all you need.

Gorgeous views from this beach! You can drive down all the way to the beach where you will see big waves washing up the shore. Drive a little further to the east and you can see the whole Buffalo Bay. It's worth taking the detour from N2. It will take you only 30 mins tops back and forth from N2!

A fabulous beach sweeping from the village to Brenton on Sea. Always clean, never heaving with people, rock pools for the children at low tide, plenty of rubbish bins and an adequate shop and resteraunt for a beach environment. There is a need to be careful when swimming and to abide by the rules. The whales stop of here in... More
