“Scenic! Go there and stare in wonder!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

Incredible. You have to see it at its most placid AND at its roughest. When its placid, there is hardle a ripple, let alone a wave coming through, there is no wind, the water is blue and you can see down 20 feet. Just beautiful! And at is roughest during a summer gale, there are these huge 20 ft or more waves coming through in which no boat could survive. Impressive and scary. If you can, try and stay at the heads but accomodation there tends to be pricey, very pricey, but I suppose with good cause given the splendour of the location.

Short walk with absolutely breath taking views at the Knysna Heads. Completely awesome experience. Try out the Heads restuarant on your way down.

A nice change from the beach. This area has a lot of history and is perfect to view on a sunny day. There is also a lovely cafe here and serves great coffee and cakes!

“Majesty, Groundedness, We are protected at all times !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

The way the Heads of Knysna maintains its majesty despite human development is quite unique. The seems to say, it is OK. Everything is OK at any moment in time.
