Wow, what a beautiful beach. Totally unspoilt. No sunbeds, no beach venders, no litter. Just a stunning stretch of perfect beach. Perfect for walking.

The other end of Brenton Beach. Good for surfing and safe bathing for children. Very popular in summer.

Loads of space on this clean beach. Take long walks, walk to Brenton on Sea, enjoy a cup of coffee and a cake an Butterfly Blu and walk back, whilst the younger ones take to surfing.

I have been holidaying here since I can remember and we are lucky enough to own a beach house here. This is my favourite place on earth. Always relaxing with a beautiful beach, a nice swimming area and lots to do in the surrounding area!! If you have not been, you should really visit Buffs!!

What a lovely part of our beautiful country ... off the beaten track. Nicely tucked away and hidden!

The Lagoon is beautiful but is not that great for swimming. However if you have a boat or canoes it is really fun.
