“Very impressive”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

We drove up to the western end, even though we were tempted to use a tour ending on the eastern end. There are 2 levels to look at. The lower level allows you up close to the water, and the upper one gives tremendous views over the heads as well as the lagoon back to the town. This place is essentially the entrance to a protected lagoon, protected from the Ocean. We saw it on a tranquil day, and I understand, on windy days, it is almost impossible to get out unless you like dicing with danger.

“Nice view”
Reviewed 13 November 2013 via mobile

I'm not sure what the fuss is about here.  We drove around and did the short walk to the heads.  There was a nice view of the bay but nothing spectacular.

“Spectacular Scenery”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

One could visit Knysna Heads daily and never tire of the scenery. Will definitely return to explore this whole area much more thoroughly.
