There’s something for everybody in this idyllic coastal town. Adrenaline-fuelled water-sports combine with stunning views and accommodation to make a holiday destination with the perfect mix of pleasure and leisure. Knysna’s many restaurants bring together the very best of local and international cuisine to begin with mouths watering and end with tummies filled. At night, the stars come out and guests can experience the hospitality of locals who are only too happy to show off their home town.
While the temperate climate promises year-round fun, there are still plenty of other reasons to visit the seaside town. Winter brings with it the Knysna Oyster Festival, a staple of the Knysna calendar since 1983 that brings together the perfect combination of sumptuous oysters and sporting events. The festival’s Forest Marathon and Forest Cycle Race are favourites among both locals and visitors. The small town is also host to many other festivals during the year, including an arts festival, a literary festival and even a motor show.
