    Stunning views
    Gosh the views are stunning. And you also gain an appreciation of the power of nature with the waves crashing in and around the rocks. We drove up East Head and parked, wandering down part way, then drove back to take in the stunning scenery from sea level. The walks along the coastal edge are great too... especially in the beautiful sunshine

    Breath Taking Views
    These views are breath taking, honestly colour of the water and the coast line is a most and can understand why it has so many reviews and is a must to do in Knysna. Its easy to walk round and only take a short amount of time. There is a little guesthouse open for drinks and food so you can sit and drink in the views of the lagoon.

    Beautiful views
    A great few hours can be spent exploring and enjoying the views of the Knysna heads. Several spots to have coffee/tea and a great lunch location near the ice cream shop too. And if you are looking to buy a hat, there are vendors in this area too. Impressive that there are parking attendants on site to ensure the safety of your parked vehicle too.

    Knysna Self Catering Accommodation
    We stayed at the Knysna Self Catering Accommodation venue of Tercia. What an amazing host and stay. It was a weekend to remember. We had our own firewood bath, braai and beautiful views. We will definitely go back there with our friends next time.

    A beautiful walk to see the serene beauty of Knysna. There's great security at the parking lot too. Video cameras and parking attendant. Make sure to give the parking attendant a tip :)

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After being offered the menu and informing that one of us was Gluten Free we were offered very little help with what was and was not GF. Luckily I can tell by what is offered if some are ok. They said no sweet was but had ice cream on the menu.
In the end we had 2 meals which were very good.

Was advised to visit but didn’t quite realise how stunningly beautiful it was. Glorious sunshine did help but the view points and cliff walk made our day
