In the heart of Knysna
Knysna’s Island Vibe is located in the thick of the action. Shops, bars, restaurants and nightclubs are a mere shuffle away while the Waterfront is only a little further down the drag. So whether you’re in search of beer, oysters or buddies, everything is within stumbling distance.
Keeping travellers happy is something Island Vibe has been doing for a while, and they’re bound to hit some holiday bliss buttons with their list of what’s Hot and Happening.
It all starts with the swimming pool and a millionaire’s view of the Knysna Heads while you breakfast.
Spirit restored, it’s time for an adventure. Their awesome, cheap day trips take you to all of Knysna’s hot spots - from forest hikes to Rastafarian visits and sunset drives to The Heads. Mountain bike, surf, hike with ellies, wreck dive, go on a canoe safari or forest horse ride. Knysna also offers boat-based whale watching and paragliding. Alternatively, get some hair of that Bad Dog you met the night before on a morning (burp) brewery tour.
