Buffalo Bay Beach is also affectionately named Buffelsbaai and you’ll find it in the Goukamma Nature Reserve just a few kilometers drive from Knysna. The beach is part of a 14 km 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 favourite 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.
Buffalo Bay has a unique, family orientated caravan park that specializes in providing prime tourist caravan & campsites on the beach. Almost completely surrounded by waves, the best view of the Indian Ocean is at your doorstep.
Holiday activities are focused around the safe beach and rock pools. Spend blissful hours here surfing, sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling, fishing, canoeing or simply chilling. Ample parking, ablutions, restaurants and a shop are conveniently situated above the beach.
Buffels Bay is an ideal swimming beach. During peak seasons there are lifeguards on duty, they will put flags out on the beach to ensure safe swimming. Be sure to stick to these demarcated spaces, as there can be currents at certain places on the beach.
