Spectacular view

Drove up the East head to the viewpoint at the top. The whole area is very picturesque and you get a great view of the lagoon and coastline. Worth a visit if you are in the area

So much to do in and around Knysna, the Heads being the most spectacular of all. Stay in a guesthouse on the east head or explore Featherbed Private reserve on the west head for a truly memorable time.

I'm sorry but I just don't get why people find this amazing. It's a rock formation by the sea, sure. It is beautiful, but I'd never go out of my way to see it again. In my opinion there are many better things to do around the Garden Route. My husband and I went with this boat called Jim Benn... More

Took the drive to the lookout at the top on our way through Knysna. Been through many times but have never stopped at the look out. The view is really worth it and the look out point is nicely maintained (along with the obligatory car guard 😣).

Stunning view of the Knysna Heads from the lookout point. From the Eastern Head we could see the caves in the Western Heads, the open sea and a stunning view of the Knysna lagoon. This is a must do if you are in Knysna. We have been there several times and the view is as breath taking as ever.

The first day I rented with my son kajaks and did this for 1 hour and saw this way the heads already from the water. We both got very wet and I was glad we were together in a kajak because we had some current. The heads were beautiful though! The next day we were on a cruise and because... More

It's beautiful, its Knysna - on the water, take in some local food, drink, be merry - worth the short drive out to go view - or view by boat - even better
