“Fantastic Beach”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

This beach is incredible for swimming or just catching a tan. Good parking access and life savers available (as well as a surfing school).

“lovely beach”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

This beach is really nice. We saw some dolphins from the terrace of the local restaurant. However, food there is cheap but not top.

“Don't miss this gem of a beach”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We were based in Kysna and after visiting various local attractions like the Heads and the waterfront we drove out to Buffalo bay. Perfect afternoon and evening. Most stunning beach area on the whole Garden route in my opinion.
