Truly breath taking. Not to be missed. The views are spectacular & it's easy to access with a small walk at the top.

Easy walk around to various view points from the cliffs on a wooden pathway. Well worth the effort. Paths are well maintained and safe and the scenery is quite breathtaking.

Knysna Heads are a great place to see spectacular views. Great from the top and the bottom. Also, a great place to dive. There is a shipwreck and sometimes you can see sea horses. Water is awesome from looking in to the lagoon to out in the ocean.

The view from the heads are awesome! The sheer drop to down below is dizzying but so worth the walk on the wooden decks running along the cliffs. Don't forget to drive to the bottom and also view the Heads from there. See how the ocean runs into the Lagoon mouth. Plenty of photo opportunities right here.

Take a look at the heads from the bottom but also drive up to the top. Good viewing platforms in several areas.

A beautiful place to visit if you are a nature lover. Try the snorkeling if you have an adventurous side.

The weather was superb, as it allowed us clear views of the heads almost butting together and restricting the access to the sea making passage by boat treacherous under any conditions.

Really great views to be had when you walk around the Heads view point. You can see both Knysna and the ocean, and have a chance of spotting whales in season. Be sure to walk around all of the terraces. You could also go down to the beach with your car, also really great.
