good place for luch

The views are amazing and the Heads restaurant is a good place for lunch. Car park can be crowded but worth waiting for a space.

The panaramic view from this vantage point is breath takingly beautiful. It was lovely watching yaughts come from the ocean through these famous heads into the lagoon. The path are well maintained and loved the benches where I could just sit and take in the view. A serene tranquil place to visit

" limited parking but the guy in the red bib does he best" We parked up the road 300 metres away and walked down 10 mins max. Stunning views of the opposite park and channel entrance in full flow bring a camera it's a must photo/video shoot. Jac C

It can be a little difficult to find the place and even to find parking... but is has great views. We went to see the sunset, but we think it should be better in the morning specially to take some photos.

We did an amazing boat trip with Alex to Knysna Heads. Alex told us all about the local bird life and interesting facts on the nature reserve and properties in the area. I would definitely recommend this tour.

A visit to Knysna heads is recommended for all ages when in the Knysna area. The scenery is breathtaking and offers different aspects from the bottom close to the lagoon to the more extensive views higher up. The colour of the sky, ocean and lagoon are amazing. If you enjoy nature, birding and coastal scenery then this is the place... More

Make sure you go all the way to the top to The View Point - then when you're done go down to the bottom and have a beer at one of the two restaurants on the water's edge.

If you come to Knysna, you must visit the Knysna Heads and experience the amazing views that are at the lookout points. Absolutely breathtaking! Try and go on a sunny day and you will be able to see for miles.

A definite must-see on your trip in or through Knysna. The view is incredible and easily accessible on the pleasant path leading you around the top. Easy to find as you follow the road signs up the hill to the parking spot.
