“BEAUTIFUL BEACHES”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Lovely beaches with wonderful rock pools for the little ones to explore. Peaceful and safe and not to far from Knysna.

“One of the best beaches around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

a very lively atmosphere, with a lot of surfers around and warm water, this is one of the best beaches i have ever visited. Although there are numerous beaches around in SA, if you are in Knysna or wilderness area, then i will def recommend this beach to you. If you don't want to carry your own boards, then you can rent it out as well in the nearby shop and there's also a restaurant nearby, where you can buy a cold bear or hot food
