It also looked untidy and tired and be careful...security guards try to make you pay if you are NOT from South Africa.

A scenic area, where you can spend a couple of days. Strolling around and search for the right places and light taking this unforgettable picture for your friends home. Direct access to the huge beaches. Worth the time spent here.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoy our daily morning walk on this beautiful beach. It is always clean and in Season bathers are looked after by lifeguards. Only criticism is all the selfish dog owners who do not abide by the rules regarding times to walk their pets on the beach.

A really great feature to help anyone explore the region by boat, swim or canoe. A good half day trip should be enough to explore the watercourse by vessel of some description. There are also lovely boardwalks on the southern banks and hiking routes to help take in the scenery by foot too!

Wilderness is one of our favourite places. The lagoon is such a beautiful stretch of water with lovely, safe swimming. You can paddle or swim for miles.

Plan your walk along Wilderness beach to finish under the bridge, walk along the lagoons edge to admire the tranquility. Worth a walk.

Fantastic panoramic view, overlooking the valley as it were; also, you behold the majestic wonder of the mountain, that makes you in awe of nature.

We love driving along the lagoon and visiting the bird hides. There is a wide variety of especially water birds. We were even lucky enough to see the Knysna Loerie
