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.

We just went to the beach one day and it was so lovely, not a lot of people around which was nice.
Really worth the trip.

You can walk the sandy beach from Brenton on Sea to Buffels Bay. In season parking is a problem near the beach. You also have to walk a way down the hill to the beach. In summer be sure you wear sandals when you walk down to the beach, because the sand can get very hot!

Great beach but nothing else there to do, but lovely to see.

It's not as if there are shops, but it's a nice drive through a lovely neighborhood, and just dreaming one might live in one of those really amazing houses overlooking the bay is worth the visit. Do the backroads up the hill, even if the neighborhood watch thinks you're cruising or stalking somebody.
