“A Lagoon at its best.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

The Lagoon is an intricate part of the town. It wraps itself around the town, watching it, protecting it, feeding some of its inhabitants.... The waters cool, energise, calm, offering itself and the indescribable nature of water, ... it gives our artists endless colour hues to copy and tells them, " Try as you might, you just cannot capture me because as you do, so I change. ....

“Beautiful surrounding”

The jnysna lagoon is very beautiful. It has an outlet to the open ocean. You can drive around and have nice views, you can do boat trips or walk around on the different islands and the waterfront.

“Changing tidal splendour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

As a local resident, one appreciates that the lagoon never presents the same scene, as the tides ebbing & flowing if from The Heads bring a different, beautiful scene, each time you're there.
