Buffelsbaai

Buffelsbaai is 'n strand en oord by Walkerpunt (Walker Point) naby Knysna, Wes-Kaap, Suid-Afrika. Die strand is bekend as 'n 'veilige' strand; daar is geen gevaarlike seestrome nie. Die naam het ontstaan as gevolg van die buffels wat in hul honderde daar gewei het. Die laaste een is in 1883 geskiet. Die Goukammarivier se monding is net so entjie wes van die strand.

Formed over geological time beginning as far back as the break-up of the supercontinent, Gondwana, during the Jurassic, 180 million years ago. the Knysna Heads can be described as the rocky headlands at the western and eastern ends of the two peninsulas that embrace and define the Knysna basin.
