From the top of an imposing mountain you can look down on crystal clear blue waters. Enjoyable sight.

Wonderful views from the top and a very special place to eat at the bottom in the East Head Cafe. The fish and chips was delicious.

The views are amazing and the Heads restaurant is a good place for lunch. Car park can be crowded but worth waiting for a space.

The panaramic view from this vantage point is breath takingly beautiful. It was lovely watching yaughts come from the ocean through these famous heads into the lagoon. The path are well maintained and loved the benches where I could just sit and take in the view. A serene tranquil place to visit

" limited parking but the guy in the red bib does he best" We parked up the road 300 metres away and walked down 10 mins max. Stunning views of the opposite park and channel entrance in full flow bring a camera it's a must photo/video shoot. Jac C

It can be a little difficult to find the place and even to find parking... but is has great views. We went to see the sunset, but we think it should be better in the morning specially to take some photos.

We did an amazing boat trip with Alex to Knysna Heads. Alex told us all about the local bird life and interesting facts on the nature reserve and properties in the area. I would definitely recommend this tour.
