A visual feast of wild beauty and ethereal terrain, Knysna’s never-ending shoreline, sandstone cliffs and sultry forest feel like they’ve been plucked out of an otherworldly tale. You’ll find secret swimming spots beneath electric-green ferns, scenic paddles winding through nature reserves and island-style bars where the beats are reggae and marimba. Beautiful beaches are absorbed into the fringes of lush wildwoods and long stretches of golden sands lead to mellow waters.
A wonderland of wildlife exists here – rainbow-hued endemic chameleons, red-feathered Loeries and rare Brenton blue butterflies all rubbing shoulders with giant yellowwood and Cape chestnut trees. And when the trees give way to a labyrinth of rivers, lakes and lagoons, the paddleboarders, sailors and swimmers come into view. In low tide, you can walk through the shallows of the estuary all the way to the iconic sandstone Knysna Heads where peacock-blue waters open into the Indian Ocean.
