I class this as a must visit. The views are lovely. It is on a roadside stop with parking. However on the one side there is sadness to see the damage caused by the recent fires.

An easy by the side of the road stop to admire the view. Sadly, we saw much of the recent devastation caused by the June 2017 forest fires. A food/drink van was parked nearby, but we didnt try it out.

A roadside spot to stop and take in the awesome view. There was a coffee truck parked there at the time we stopped but it was missing when we passed next day.

Best view of Knysna from the western side on the heads - on the Brenton on sea road - good for sunrise and moonrise at full moon

Stopped there again to view the fire damage to the surroundings. There was evidence of fire damage in Knysna, but it does not detract from the visit to the area. Nature will soon return the green areas. The treas will take much longer to replace....More

Situated on route to Belvidere village and Brenton on Sea, this roadside stop offers spectacular views of Knysna. There are a few benches to sit on and enjoy the views of the lagoon.

This has to be a must do activity. Take a good bottle of wine and a basket of cheese and watch the sunset and sit with Margaret for a while. She will enjoy your company.

From this vantage point you get outstanding views of Knysna and the lagoon . Well worth the stop up the hill on your way to Brenton on Sea.

Everybody raves about the view of Knysna lagoon from the Heads. That must be because they haven't discovered this little pull off on the Brenton on sea road.
