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.

This place is certainly worth the detour from the N2 of about 10km.
Really nice, long sandy beach & decent surf. Not much else to see but worth the drive.

Stayed here for 2 nights on our last South Africa trip and just loved this place. Extremely comfortable stay, well maintained sea facing room and kitchen equipped with all necessary utensils. This was more required coz we were travelling with less than 2 year old kid. Each suite has a different entry and that gave a feeling of home away from home. We even had dinner at their restaurant which is at a distance from rooms so we had to take our car.. but again it gives a beautiful view of sunset and food is delicious. Will like to stay here again given a choice.

Beautiful sandy beach, perfect for a long walk around the bay and to Buffalo Bay. Gorgeous views over the ocean, quiet and safe, and a good way to escape the crowds. Well worth a visit.

We just love Brenton, stunning beach, exquisite beauty and charm. Away from the crowds of Knysna, it really caters for those of us who need some tranquility.

Brenton on Sea has the most breathtaking view of the ocean. It literally feels like you are "on" the sea. The establishment was beautiful and very clean. It was a very cold day, and we were welcomed with a warm smile at the reception and our room was already heated up for us as well. Although our stay was short, we most definitely enjoyed enjoyed every bit of our stay. Next time we would like to visit in summer to enjoy what Brenton on Sea has to offer in the summer time.

Great walk along the beach, felt safe, same with the parking. Restaurant nearby looked basic as (almost) any small-dorpie (village) place on a South African beach, this seemed actually even better than most from a distance. Lifeguard on duty even. Good, safe place to come.
