Area description

Often voted as South Africans’ favourite holiday spot on the Garden Route, Knysna enjoys a unique location in an area of unrivalled natural beauty and is the oyster capital of South Africa. Overlooking an 11km long lagoon, the town nestles between the majestic Outeniqua mountains and the Indian Ocean. Surrounded by deep forests and vast expanses of natural fynbos, Knysna is dominated by the Heads - the impressive sandstone cliffs at the mouth of the lagoon.

There are numerous fine restaurants and shops in the Knysna waterfront, quays and town centre, whilst the surrounding area offers excellent opportunities for sailing, cycling, hiking, surfing, bird and whale-watching and game viewing. Golfers will be in paradise as the superb Pezula and Simola courses are close by.
