If you're in the area definitely take the time to pass through here and see this gorgeous view. There's a good cafe here too but a bit on the pricey side.

It is absolutely worthwhile either driving there or taking a lagoon tour, to experience and see the Knysna Heads. It is breathtaking. We took the lagoon tour option and it was interesting to experience how rough the water is there.

Well organised and easily accessible areas both on the ground at East Heads cafe, and up at the viewpoint above. Although the viewpoint is difficult for someone with limited walking ability. However the views from ground level are no less impressive than from up high....More

It was a short stay since we were on a tour but it is well worth the effort as Knysna Heads viewpoint offers magnificent views over Knysna River estuary and the Indian Ocean.
