    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.

    Two beaches really / one on the right as you drive there. And one more public in the village. Lovely views. Well worth a visit from Knysna

    Great beach for kids. The kids have a absolute blast however the water has a slight stench to it, which qas the only thing to be wary of.
