Brenton-on-Sea is great for walking and sunbathing and is popular with paragliders. A big rock formation, castle Rock, is a favourite fishing spot for locals. Swimming is dangerous because of rip currents.

Beautiful untouched coast line, lovely beach to walk on a very serene area, prior to walking on the beach there are a few restaurants and a hotel that have been erected.

A great place to relax and get away from all the worldly stresses. Enjoy peaceful wave watching and inhale the fresh sea air.

It is a beautiful beach, safe for swimming or you can walk from there to Buffels bay which is quite a few kilometres away. You walk down a steep ramp down to the beach from the parking above, so to walk back up again takes some excercise but worth the effort!

This is the lesser known headland of Knysna but in may ways more beautiful because it is less busy and less built up. Driving to Brenton gives you the opportunity to walk on the beach and explore the beauty of the area. If you do leave the restaurants at the top and go to the beach make sure you turn... More

I could imagine people retire here...the see and the view and lots of houses on the dunes...if you enjoy fresh sea air and long walks this is definitely one of the best beaches to do it !

We have been to Knysna often during the past 20 years but for some reason have never stopped for a visit. What a lovely unspoilt place and as busy as the other more obvious attractions. We stopped off at the beach and looked at some of the rock formations...lovely visit and we will definitely do this again in summer.

My husband and I had lunch at Butterfly Blue Restaurant to celebrate my birthday over the past weekend. We were pleasantly surprised by this beautiful town as we followed the winding road down to the parking area and beach. The beach is breathtaking and unspoiled with the beach stretching for miles all the way to Buffalo beach. We spend hours... More
