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.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

Just a large fabulous sandy beach and small number of houses nestling above with an occasional hang glider landing for company

“Lovely town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

Great little place. Too bad that there are so many "For Sale" signs. The place is gorgeous and would love to visit here for a longer period

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

If you are visiting Knysna you should go at least for a short visit here.....or maybe you could stay here and visit Knysna instead. Thats what we thought when we came over from Knysna. Because here you also find great views & white beaches for long walks.

“Go for the Sunset!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

A pretty place but with very little in the way of amenities. The beach is stunning with a view of the ocean to match, but if you want to witness a matchless sunset, this is the place to be. Sit on the clifftop and watch the sun go down, then head down the Head with the Lagoon on one side and the ocean on the other for a perfect view of day's end.

“Stunning beaches”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

We just drove there to see the beaches and the views along the headland. In November the beaches were completely deserted and looked very inviting but we had too many things to fit in to spend time on the beach. There wee toilets there but I couldn't see any form of cafe.
