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.

“come and see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

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.

“Fab beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

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

“A magnificent beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

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.

“Not too commercial”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

I like the fact that it's quite secluded. Not too many shops or restaurants. Bathrooms and deck also very neat.

A 5 minute scenic drive out of knysna. You can walk from one end of this long beach to the other ( restaurants/cafe at each end). Good parking
