Buffalo Bay Beach

Fodor's Review

About 20 km (12 miles) from Knysna, Buffalo Bay Beach offers safe swimming and excellent surfing and body-boarding conditions. It's around a half-moon bay with a sandy beach next to a grassy peninsula. The little village has been spared overdevelopment because of its proximity to the nearby Goukamma Nature Reserve. There is a popular beach walk in the direction of Brenton-on-Sea, and there are accommodations in the nature reserve (booked through Cape Nature). Amenities:

food and drink; lifeguards; parking; showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: surfing; swimming; walking.
