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

Came here a few years ago and thought it was beautiful then and still do, just a little more populated. What a stunning Bay, had a lovely couple of walks along the shoreline, watched the young men surfing, read my book under the umbrella and time flew by. On leaving went to the cafe bar at the end of beach... More

I did enjoy this beach - but then I love almost all South Afrcan beaches especially the ones that are not so built up. I thought the beach in Sedgefield was prettier with dunes behind you instead of buildings (that's why 4 and not 5). This one was not too busy, the sand was clean and the sea was lovely... More

Possibly the nicest beach I saw in South Africa! Unfortunately we only drove by and stopped for 10 minutes, but it was a great beach and not very busy.

Beautiful long sandy beach. Need to take brollies or hire. Good, clean shower facility, waves fairly gentle because you're in the bay. My young children loved it.
