Owner description: 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.

“Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This is one place where you can go and the beaches are clean and it is safe. The only thing is that you must watch out for some cross currents. Never swim alone.

“Brenton on Sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Marvellous beach which stretches round to Buffalo Bay. Not many cafes/restaurants but the one near the car park was pretty Ok. Brenton is a bit too remote to have as your base - Ok for a day trip to the beach.

“Very nice sleepy little place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

There's a great little restaurant/bar here that is well worth a visit. The owner is very welcoming and helpful. As a visitor to South Africa it was quite refreshing to find a place where you could happily stroll around at anytime of the day and we were shown a lovely spot along the beach worthy of a visit. Also some nice accomodation available.

“Stunning beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Nothing to do in Brenton itself but the beach is stunningly beautiful. It is possible to walk from Brenton beach to Buffalo Bay, have a snack at the restaurant, and return. A good morning's exercise.
