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.

“A great place for a dip or to build a sand castle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2013 via mobile

It is a nice drive with sweeping views of Kynsna on the way to this fabulous beach. At this time of year the beach is relatively deserted so pick where you swim carefully as the undertow can be strong. The sand is beautifully clean and white and the beach is long if you want the exercise. Make sure you bring sunscreen as the sun is fierce. There is plenty of parking, good toilets, and a shower for washing of excess sand. There are a few steps but the descent to the beach is via a sloping boardwalk.

“Beautiful Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

This is one of the best beaches in Knysna. You can just relax or walk all the way to buffalo bay. Ideal for romantic walks in the evening.

“Nice sunset!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

The town has no attractions, but the view and the beach are both very beautiful. If you have the chance to spend the sunset time admiring the view, do it. It's worth.

“Beautiful shoreline”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2013

The view of the Brenton on Sea bay stretches for miles from the car park cliffside. On an evening with a majestic sunset, this spot is a must to enjoy with a sundowner!

“Amazing sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

From Brenton we took a walk all the strand long, up to Buffalo Bay (4,5 km app.) The tide didn't block us to come back (5pm) to Brenton. It's worthwhile to see the sunset from Breton, to relax and unwind.
