Knysna Heads


The Knysna Heads are two huge sandstone columns that stand side by side at the mouth of the Knysna Lagoon, where the ocean meets the rough sea. The ‘Heads’ form a channel where the angry sea races through.

The Western Side of the head is privately owned and visitors can explore it while on a Featherbed Nature Reserve Tour. The Eastern Side of the head is easily reached by car and there are many view points – perfect for taking in the truly spectacular views. The Eastern Head is also home to a restaurant and a number of locally owned houses.
