We drove to the eastern head. There are viewpoints at the top and the beach is accessible if you drive further past the viewpoints. The views are really good. We saw two paths on the western head that looked really awesome. We didn't have time...More

Knysna was probably our best stop for accommodation and location. The Heads are beautiful - great walk up to viewpoint so can see out to sea and then can walk down to lovely beach and rocky area. The scenery changes so much as the tide...More

I hadnt been into Knysna for many years although passed through. It was wonderful to have time to explore the beauty there . The most spectacular spot is the Heads. Just breathtaking.

Stunningly beautiful with old Dutch houses on the peninsulas and islands. Excellent on-board meals - a truly amazing trip.

This really is a star beauty of nature that needs to be experienced with the added bonus of a good restaurant from which to view it.

Oh gosh it is breathtaking, can't get enough of the views - loads of photography opportunities - just awesome - you can't visit Knysna and not go to the Heads Wow.

Staying nearby & made the drive in our car. Roads are narrow & curvy & there are speed bumps. Tested my boyfriend’s manual car driving skills! Can be windy so take a sweater or jacket. Indian Ocean views are so beautiful!

We had a free day in Knysna and our Guide took us to Heads view point. Exceptional views on a clear sunny day. A lot of photo opportunity. Loved it.
