Milkwood Bay, Knysna Lagoon

As one of South Africa’s favourite holiday destinations, leisure and relaxation is what Knysna’s all about. Pack the beach bats, umbrella and towels – and don’t forget the sunscreen as you head to one of our beautiful beaches. Sedgefield’s Swartvlei and Myoli beaches are ideal for rock pool explorations and truly endless walks at low tide – all the way to Buffalo Bay’s Wild Side . Buffalo Bay’s main beach is perfect for safe swimming and awesome surfing, and you can walk to the ever popular beach at Brenton on Sea. Bollard’s Bay on Leisure Island in Knysna lies on the lagoon with a view straight through the iconic Knysna Heads, and the beach at Noetzie offers wild seclusion (and quite a few steps to climb back to your car). Leisure time in Knysna can get quite busy with fantastic shopping, intriguing history and a wide selection of arts and culture to discover.
