“Always good for visitors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Beautiful views - nature at its best. Our visitors always love it and are suitably impressed. Decking could do with some fixing.

“Spectacular views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Our visit to The Heads was the highlight of our visit to Knysna. The viewpoints offered a variety of vistas from the lagoon and the town to the rugged cliffs and rocky coastline. Great photo opportunities all around. Drive down Coney Glen to the beach area if you get a chance and walk out on the sand amid the colorful rocks. The Knysna waterfront was a typical tourist destination with many shops and restaurants if you care for that sort of thing.

“Sensational Views of Knysna Lagoon and Coastline”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The steep drive up to The Heads via Coney Glen Drive is exciting enough but when you walk the short walk down to the boardwalk along cliff top, the views are awesome and well worth the detour. The boardwalk is short with several nerve tingling viewpoints that give magnificent views of both The Lagoon to the north and west and the ocean and its beautiful coastline to the south and east. This is easy walking and should not be too much of a challenge for anyone.

“Breathtaking views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Allthough Knysna wasn't at all what we expected it to be, the heads is certainly worth the visit whilst you are there. The views from the rocks are wooow, and it makes you feel very tiny when you see the waves bursting in.

Two great places in the east head, either for coffee/ breakfast, or dinner.
