I Love Brenton on Sea Because …

Updated Saturday, 22 December 2018

Hi, I’m Derrik from Brenton Beach House in Brenton on Sea on the Garden Route.

Brenton on Sea IS BEST KNOWN FOR its tranquillity and long sandy beaches.

GET YOUR PICTURE TAKEN AT Castle rock or on Fishermans walk. See the best sunsets all within a few minutes from the Brenton Beach House.

THE BEST sunset PICTURES CAN BE TAKEN FROM the Fishermans walk.

OTHER HAPPY SNAPS AT the Brenton Blue butterflies or the Fynbos flowers.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S GOOD, I LIKE TO walk or run the 5km long beach.

WHEN THE WEATHER’S BAD, I LIKE TO just sit on the beaches above the beach and watch the waves breaking or read a good book in front of the fire place of the Brenton Beach House.
