This Knysna area is one of the most beautiful coastlines in South Africa. Visiting this coastline requires 2 months to see "some" Visiting in different seasons are recommended as each season provides it own best.

Is is a must to go up to the View point and view the beauty of Knysna and its islands. There is a parking place very close to the viewpoint.

Good place to get a view of the area from the top of the cliffs. One can also go down to the rocks on the ocean side.

While not exactly a place you can safely swim, the Knysna Heads are an impressive place to visit, complete with crashing waves and great bird life.
