Most evenings there we watched the sun setting over the lagoon from our balcony with a bottle of Cape wine and a block of locally made blue cheese. No complaints there! Although Knysna is a little bit built up, you only have to drive a kilometre or two out or drive over to the Knysna Heads and it's stunning! Plus the ...
