Owner description: Buffalo Bay is a family beach with safe swimming and great surfing conditions. It is also ideal for walking (all the way to Brenton on Sea) and fishing.

One of the best beaches we've ever seen. Pure golden sand, without shingle or stones, curves from Buffalo Bay to Brenton making, a wonderful walk. Shelves very gently making bathing safe and ideal for children.

We had a wonderful time at Buffalo Bay. The water is crystal clear and there was even a school of sardines joining us in the shallow waves. Down the road there's some rock pools with beautiful fish swept in with the currents.

The lovely beach is badly let down by the extravagant prices and poor service of the only shop and restaurant that are run by one owner. They have upped prices and downed service over the last few years. Time for the owners to realise the importance of good value and excellent service.

I've been on holiday in Buffalo Bay for a few weeks now, and I will never get tired of this beach. You can walk for nearly 13km (round trip) on the beach to Brenton-on-Sea. The surfing, body boarding and swimming is phenomenal. It has received 'Blue Flag' status recently. There are always life guards, good facilities, parking, a cafe and restaurant. Definitely a good beach to visit if you are in the area.
