The Knysna Heads are exciting, awesome and the view is out of this world, after looking at the view from the upper level which is amazing, you can go to the lower one and have a drink and just soak in the scenery.

the entrance to the estuary through the heads is a must see. A lot of people call this a Lagoon and is often referred to as a lagoon but it is an estuary for three rivers.

The heads offer wonderful views from high up on the Eastern Head, and also down at sea level where the waves continuously crash into the rocks. There is a restaurant -Senza which offers Italian food and a wonderful cafe - East Head Cafe which offers incredible food at very competitive pricing.

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.

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.
