We took a drive to the Heads, and the view here of this part of the coastline is a must for all visitors and "photoholics". A beautiful short walk, and stunning place to pop the question with such views.

An easy pull on the road to Brenton On Sea that offers great views from above the lagoon. There is a bench where you can just sit and soak up the view or take photographs of the whole Kynsna area.

Worth a visit and easy to find. Great views across the lagoon and Knysna. Also suggest you visit the east head for great views.

I class this as a must visit. The views are lovely. It is on a roadside stop with parking. However on the one side there is sadness to see the damage caused by the recent fires.

An easy by the side of the road stop to admire the view. Sadly, we saw much of the recent devastation caused by the June 2017 forest fires. A food/drink van was parked nearby, but we didnt try it out.

A roadside spot to stop and take in the awesome view. There was a coffee truck parked there at the time we stopped but it was missing when we passed next day.

Best view of Knysna from the western side on the heads - on the Brenton on sea road - good for sunrise and moonrise at full moon

Stopped there again to view the fire damage to the surroundings. There was evidence of fire damage in Knysna, but it does not detract from the visit to the area. Nature will soon return the green areas. The treas will take much longer to replace....More

Situated on route to Belvidere village and Brenton on Sea, this roadside stop offers spectacular views of Knysna. There are a few benches to sit on and enjoy the views of the lagoon.
