your destination

Knysna

Welcome to the most popular town in the Garden Route. Knysna is primarily built on the northern shore of a large warm-water estuary, known as the Knysna Lagoon, which is fed by the Knysna River. The estuary opens to the ocean after passing between two large headlands. These are popularly known as “The Heads”, and have become infamous due to the loss of boats and fishermen passing through their treacherous and unpredictable waters.

Home to the illustrious Pansy Shell, the Knysna Lagoon is a must-see spot. Children will love playing in the shallow waters, as adults sit in their deck chairs and marvel at the Knysna Heads. Secure, peaceful and beautiful, Leisure Isle combines a fun day at the beach; go canoeing, kayaking, hire a speed boat or go fishing.
