“Still Magic”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Almost a year since my last review of Bollard Bay and the beach, and its perfect view of The Heads, remains magical. This time i had 20 kids along as well as 9 adults.Some of us started with a hike through Steenbok Nature Reserve to Kingfisher Creek where we waded in ankle deep water around the bend until we'd rejoined the group. All had a fantastic time!

“real Knysna”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

bollard Bay is a beautiful bay with perfect view onto the Knysna Heads.The beach is fairly clean and perfect if you have small children as the water is not deep at all - and that goes on for 50 -100m! Not great if you want to swim as you will have to walk a mile :)
