Even if you are not a beach person, you can still enjoy the bay. From the surfer’s area to the beautiful wide open beach and the wonderful beach terrace restaurant, you will enjoy the trip to Buffelsbay.

We used to come here as children. Bringing our Children here brought back many memories, there are km of sandy beach to walk on. There are also some lovely rock pools and beautiful shells. It is quiet and beautiful. We came on days that were cool and rainy and the children absolutely loved it.

Took a drive here on one of the rainy days and we would consider staying here next time! Such a lovely drive and beautiful quaint town.

We drove here on the recommendation of other reviews but quite frankly wished we had not bothered. We visited in spring, out of season, so perhaps things liven up and look better in season.

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.
