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.

We arrived at 5;45 pm to a very limited menu. We chose the fish & chips but this was unavailable! Our next choice was also unavailable and we were told Pizzas were available. We left. Views are incredible and seems ideal for a drink or cocktail. Cant comment on the food as we didnt' fancy pizza.

fantastically clean and beautiful beach to sit on or walk along, personally would only recommend paddling rather than swimming

The staff at Brenton on sea cottages are phenominal. The accommodation is beautiful and rustic providing everything you need. Free Wi Fi keeps you connected and the local restaurant Nautical South does all the meal requirements. Value for money tranquil beautiful setting for couples of families.

Very beautiful! Kids enjoyed poking jellyfish and burning off some energy walking the beach. Ate a little snack at the deli near the beach parking lot and that was yummy .

Brenton on Sea is one of those places that we just keep coming back to on each visit to Knysna. On our recent stay (April/May) in Knysna we took the scenic and breathtaking winding route to Brenton on Sea. My husband and I were once again left breathless as we feast our eyes on the wide beach with rolling and... More

One of the prettiest beaches in the area. I found it more secluded than Wilderness, but as wide and clean as can be. Lovely space to walk with leashed dogs and some beautiful restaurants to further enjoy the area.
