  • The journey alone is spectacular. The Lagoone lies in front of you and in the background the stormy huge waves. Just before Buffels Bay the first parking lot. Yes, it stinks here of washed-up red pait / sea squirts. But as a beachcomber a paradise.. If you are interested, you will find here a number of washed-up interesting objects and shows the diversity of the sea here. Rock formation with special color play followed by the first wide sandy beach. Bathing is not suitable here. On the other hand in Buffels Bay itself, it has a good beach for bathing. No, here you will find fishermen, birds, wind and this wild wide people poor beach.
