Absolutely not to be missed is the viewpoint at the Heads. The Heads of Knysna are a geographic marvel. From the viewpoint you may be lucky enough to spot a southern right whale – this gigantic creature finds both food and refuge just after the mating season when her calf is born. A set of binoculars may help you to spot them. From the northern side of the viewpoint, you will see Featherbed Nature Reserve, Leisure Isle and the expansive Knysna Lagoon.
