Brenton on Sea
#4 of 26 Nature & Parks in Knysna
The drive to Brenton gives you great views of Knysna and when you get to the free car park the views along the beach are tremendous, there is a bistro cafe opposite the car park if you need refreshments.
Take your pick, park on the upper car park and sit on the benches and watch the Indian Ocean waves crash on the rocks, and, if you’re lucky see the dolphins.

Buffalo Bay is a spesial place, Wonderful beach for kids to swim and if you like a stroll there +- 4 km unspoiled beach toward Brenton and also towards Sedgefield you walk in the Goukamma Nature reserve.

... sights, stunning 4x4 and biking trails, hiking trails, historical locations - it's a great place to spend a few days just getting back to nature, taking photographs, having a few outdoor adventures and relaxing.
If time permitted, we would have stayed at the Tsitsikamma Cottages within the park as they were extremely reasonably priced with great access to the walks.
