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.

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

Brenton on Sea is so picturesque, with gorgeous little bays and coves and secluded beaches. Some are not too easy to access, but taken slowly, they are worth the effort. Away from the madding crowd certainly describes this stunning area.

Fantastic beautiful beach at the bottom of a cliff walk, we were here for a magical wedding ceremony, which was the best that I have ever been to. Beautiful setting.

Ocean, coffee and fresh air... What more do you need? A very quaint beach, with a stunning view, we couldn't stay away!! Being a bit far out from our Cottage that we stayed at, we made it a trip to go to the beach. Enjoying coffee and a stunning view, we stayed here for hours.

The drive up to the beach over the hills were quite steep but once you reach it, it was all worth the drive. This beach is unspoiled, clean, and good for any activities.

Came here not knowing what we would find and were rewarded with a walk along the spectacular unspoiled sand of this wonderful beach with ocean breakers providing the soundtrack. Walked for about two miles and met one lady walking her dog!
