if you visit Knysna you have to visit the Heads. About 10 mins off the N2 along the Lagoon. The view is awesome no matter how many times you visit this beautiful town. there are a couple of restaurants to relax at and a quick trip up to Coney Glen by car is worth the view for some amazing pics

A stunning short drive up well marked twisty turning roads to parking lots. A brief stroll takes one to a board walk with balconies seemingly suspended beyond sheer cliffs. The great thing is that if the first view spot is full of tourists walk further on - there are many balconies, each with a fantastic viewpoint looking down (oooh scary)... More

It's a slightly remote place and i can imagine it would be hard to find but its worth locating as you will get some amazing views of the Knysna heads for free. Worth a visit if you are near or visiting Knysna.

We had a boat trip to Knysna Heads through the lovely Lagoon. The entrance to the lagoon looks so tiny until you actually get there.

Not much to say other than the views of the heads are really good. The walkway is right on the edge of the cliff so maybe don't go if you are scared of heights. Really nice area but can get a little windy as you would expect at the top of a cliff.
