Brenton on sea is a beautiful spot. Great for exploring "castle rock" at low tide, walks and sundowners, but the surf is rough, and there are rip-currents. Rather drive to Buffels Bay for a safe swim. Brenton-on -sea beach is very clean. For a fantastic walk, try the "Fishermans' Walk", in the same street as the beach, but in the... More

Our family took a drive to the beach today and decided to try out Brenton on sea. What a hidden treasure, the beach was stunning and my son and I took a looooong stroll. My daughter, who was not in the mood to go out, got into her cozzie and we could not get her to leave. You can't swim... More

It's very easy to get to Brenton On Sea if you have a car. It's a quaint town by the ocea. You can just park your car up on the hill and enjoy the top view of the beach down. Huge waves washing onshore. Impressive views.

An easy drive from Knysna to a long sandy beach with hardly a soul on it. Some new apartments going up may put pressure on the facilities.

A little away from "world", Brenton is a peaceful and quite place to stay and breath. No excitement, just nature and the incredible sea. It is worthwile to visit this place in early morning or late noon light. Come, see and relax.

You could walk for miles. Wonderful pristine beach and crashing waves. Steep stairs down but worth the climb

A must visit! The most beautiful clean beach and you can walk to Buffels Bay about one hours walk. We loved the sand and water which are both spotless and breathtaking.
