Buffelsbaai | iinfo TZANEEN

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. Die strand is net per pad vanaf die N2 nasionale pad bereikbaar.Buffelsbaai (also Buffels Bay and Buffalo Bay) is a small seaside village 20 kilometres from Knysna in the Garden Route District Municipality in the Western Cape province of South Africa. The village is named after Buffelsbaai which stretches east of the village. It is a popular vacation destination with a small waterfront with stores.
 
The cargo ship Kiani Satu, travelling from Hong Kong to Ghana with a shipment of rice, ran aground and sank off the coast of the town in August 2013. Leaked oil from the vessel threatened the nearby Goukamma Nature Reserve; 217 birds were cleaned. The huge half-heart sweep of the bay offers reasonable protection for swimmers and surfers from the strong currents and rip tides that most of the Garden Route beaches are prone to. There is an interesting hiking trail of about 4 kilometers through the dune behind the beach that can be incorporated into a beach walk. It gives you wonderful views of the ocean and the coastal resort itself, taking you through some dune forest and fynbos that is absolutely stunning when in flower.
 
The bay also offers great whale (May to November), dolphin and bird watching opportunities.
