Knysna Heads is a breathtaking experience and a beautiful one. Definitely one worth experiencing. There is sufficient parking and well-paved roads. There is a lookout point that has a brilliant view of Knysna and provides a great opportunity for taking pictures.

We toured this region and it has some wonderful views with the heads being just one of the many, whilst on a boat trip the guide gave us a very informative talk telling us about the Knysna history.

We had lunch at the Waterfront at The Dry Dock. The oysters were fantastic and so was the steak.
