One of the Garden Route's most famous landmark must surely be the Knysna Heads, standing guard over the entrance to the Knysna Lagoon. Heads is short for headlands and the two Knysna Heads is probably just about as popular for travellers to photograph than Table Mountain. The Eastern Head, from where the picture above was taken, is home to one of Knysna's most upmarket suburbs with the houses having superb views over the lagoon and ocean, while the Western Head is a protected area and falls within the Featherbed Nature Reserve.
The best views of the Heads and surrounding lagoon and ocean can be had from the top of the Heads themselves. Driving up the Eastern Head visitors can park their cars in the demarcated area and take a walk along a path that will take them to several lookout areas along the edge of the cliff. From here you can also see why the Heads is one of the most dangerous entrance / exits to a port in the world.
Another popular spot is at the end of George Rex Drive where you can see the Heads from below. From here there is also a path that will take you towards the opening itself.
