Buffels Bay (otherwise known as Buffs) is a rustic seaside resort town for people looking for a real holiday away from their busy lives. For much of the year Buffels Bay’s homes are empty, leaving the town to its quiet and simple ways. During the peak summer season it becomes a bustling, energetic place where one struggles to find parking near the beach. Buffels Bay is the perfect swimming and surfing beach. The crystal clear waters and flat, sandy ocean floor are the trademarks of this beach.
Why not walk the 5km (one way) from Brenton on Sea? In Buffs have a soft serve ice-cream or an ice-cold beer at the restaurant above.
Buffalo Bay Beach is part of a 5km stretch of sand that is sheer bliss to all visitors. The area is unique offering magnificent white sandy beaches and dues, continuous blue waves as well as coastal fynbos, which in itself is spectacular and flanked by a coastal forest.
This is a favorite beach for holiday makers, both local and foreign as the area offers a large variety of activities including fishing, boating, surfing or just relaxing in the shallow waters and sunbathing on the beach. If you’re visiting from July to October you might be lucky enough to spot a dolphin or two frolicking in the waves. When your stomach starts to grumble and you’ve forgotten a picnic lunch head up to restaurants close by.
Indulge in a 5 km beach walk with a knowledgeable guide that will guide and point out shells, birds, whales and dolphins in season (july-nov) experience the 100% safe walk surrounded by indigenous natural bush and pure finest white sands and blue clear waters of the Indian Ocean. These walks are suitable for all ages. They are one of the best in the Garden Route.
