Knysna was absolutely beautiful! We loved the lagoon and the view from the Heads. We spent one day at Buffalo Bay Beach, which was also beautiful. We actually ate at the more crowded beach and then left and rode a little ways back to another section of the beach that was less crowded and even more beautiful with a rocky section of beach. We found the waterfront very enjoyable, and loved eating by the water at Dry Dock Restaurant. We wish we would of had more days to stay, but we were in route to other places.

What a wonderful place Knysna is. There are so many lovely things to do and see in and around Knysna. There are ferry rides, islands to visit and beaches to visit. Lovely shopping at the Waterfront and the centre of town. We stayed at Paradise Found in the suburb of Paradise which has the most beautiful panoramic views of Knysna, the Lagoon and the Heads.

I just love Knysna. A day on a boat on that gorgeous lagoon, followed by more oysters than you can eat. What's not to love?
