Great view point to look over the whole of the Knysna Lagoon

This has to be a must do activity. Take a good bottle of wine and a basket of cheese and watch the sunset and sit with Margaret for a while. She will enjoy your company.

From this vantage point you get outstanding views of Knysna and the lagoon . Well worth the stop up the hill on your way to Brenton on Sea.

Everybody raves about the view of Knysna lagoon from the Heads. That must be because they haven't discovered this little pull off on the Brenton on sea road.

This is a viewpoint only. There are no amenities. Shops, rest rooms or other facilities. It's rarely crowded, so parking is easy. The view itself is breathtaking. If you have time to visit simply for a viewpoint, this is a definite must on the list. Every time we look at our photos, it brings back happy memories. Enjoy

Do not hesitate to go here- Great views and there are not that many tourists (they tend to stay near the sea...)

On a clear day or not, Margaret's viewpoint offers an excellent visual of the Knysna Lagoon. We drove pass daily and was a always a pleasure looking out.

This is one of my favorite view sites in Knysna. Whenever we have visitors it is one of the view sites that we take them to. You can see for miles!
