Owner description: Buffalo Bay is a family beach with safe swimming and great surfing conditions. It is also ideal for walking (all the way to Brenton on Sea) and fishing.
Reviewed 14 March 2012

Buffels is a really nice family beach. It has good surfing as well as safe paddling for little ones in a mostly unspoilt and natural environment. Also great for beach walks. 7km to Brenton and back.

This is the best swimming beach in the area. Also there's a spectacular lagoon set in a national park where you can picnic and swim. Further upstream you can canoe.

I love the quiet and the one shop/restaurant. Always fun to eat pizza on the deck and look out on the bay

Visited this beach when staying at Forest Edge (wonderful place). Beach was beautiful with white sand, no rocks, shallows for kids. The cafe overlooking the beach had a great view, but food very disappointing (calamari and chips was flabby, soggy, bland). Service also poor. Use it for a drink and the view.
