Thesen Islands is a secure marina estate in the picturesque vacation town of Knysna. This part of the Garden Route is acclaimed for its outstanding natural beauty, the variety of fauna and flora, the stunning beaches and the long list of things for visitors to see and do.

Thesen Islands is a gorgeous, secure estate that has a charming colonial maritime look and feel, coupled with world-class facilities. The sports facilities here ensure that residents and vacationers alike always have something to do in the way of sports and outdoor activities. These provide fun, healthy ways to spend time with friends and family while getting the heart rate going and the blood pumping.

The sports facilities on Thesens include:

Two all-weather tennis courts, which have been sunken below ground level to give the players some protection from the wind. These courts are floodlit at night so that, on warm, clear summer evenings, players can continue with their game unhindered by the appearance of the moon.

A squash court, complete with viewing deck and changing facilities. This court is indoors, next to the tennis courts.

A putting green with 18 holes and a par 3 rating. This is located behind the park, with views of Knysna and the lagoon that make it even more scenic and special.

Permanent volley ball posts on the private beach, inviting bathers to make the most of the excellent weather conditions of the Western Cape and enjoy a game with friends on the soft sand.

Cricket practice nets.

Because the islands themselves are so beautiful, folks love speed-walking, jogging or cycling around the neighbourhood. There is also a path along part of the perimeter, showcasing the protected marshlands and giving walkers a spectacular place in which to work up a sweat.

In addition to these, there are a wide variety of water sports that those staying on the island can enjoy, thanks to the beaches, canals and communal moorings throughout. These include swimming, stand-up paddling, kayaking, and boating.
