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 14km 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 costal 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. When your stomach starts to grumble and you’ve forgotten a picnic lunch head up to one of the Knysna restaurants close by.
