Escape to South Africa's haven of nature, Brenton on Sea in Knysna, where you will experience the best of the world-renowned Garden Route. Brenton on Sea is situated on 7km of pristine coastline and nestles between the Indian Ocean and Western Head of Knysna's Estuary. It is a breathtaking holiday location best known for its tranquillity and long sandy beaches. Many have fallen in love with this little sleepy hollow suburb of Knysna and some even describe it as having "Champagne air." Brenton Haven is perched on a dune above the main beach, with spectacular 180 degree ocean view, which provides guests with the perfect opportunity to see hundreds of dolphins passing, or whales playing in the waves.
