“Lovely spot”
Review of Groenvlei Lake

Groenvlei Lake
Ranked #12 of 20 things to do in Sedgefield
Attraction details
Reviewed June 26, 2016 via mobile

A lesser-known and therefore quiet spot between Sedgefield and Knysna. It's the only freshwater lake in the Garden Route lakes system and is home to bass. The dirt road past Groenvlei leads to a beautiful and mostly-deserted beach called Platbank. Even in the height of the summer season very few tourists find their way there. And it's dog-friendly!

Beautiful, peaceful lake with fishing, boating, walking - all available. Lake Pleasant Living is superior service self catering with all other amenities from pool to Spa and restaurant

This lake is a joy to behold. Hire a boat, or experience it by walking around its massive birth, or take in its glory by eating a meal at one of the two restaurants that are fortunate enough to be based on its borders. Any way you take it in, it is a must if you spend any time in Sedgefield.

Great place to go bass fishing. Very peaceful and beautiful. Pick a calm day and head to the Groenvlei in the early morning. You can get a fishing licence in Knysna or in the little fishing shop in Sedgefield. You also need a boat licence if you have a boat.

A great place for a breakfast away from the crazy crowds when in season.
The food is really good, lots of place for the kids to walk around.
A bustling restaurant set outside in the most part in lovely gardens.
