Knysa and its lagoons are one of the most popular stops on the Garden Route. The lagoon is guarded by two sandstone cliffs known as The Heads. There are spectacular views from the Eastern Head.

Knysa is renowned for its beer and oysters - they go together quite well. A visit to either Mitchell's Brewery or the Knysna Oyster Company gives you a tasteful introduction to the city. Museums such as the Millwood House Museum or the Angling Museum - housed in the Old Gaol complex in Queen Street - give you some historic background info. Local craft centres and art galleries are well worth a visit too.

Close to Knysa you find attractions such as Noetzie, the Buffalo Valley Game Farm and the Featherbed Nature Reserve that make for perfect excursions. The Brenton / Buffalo Bay beach offers first-class swimming and surfing conditions.
