The western side is a privately owned nature reserve (Featherbed Nature Reserve) that you can visit by ferry. Here are a few activities you can partake in:
- Cruising on the lagoon (includes champagne and oysters)
- Restaurants and bar facilities
- Nature Trails
Another relaxing way of enjoying the Knysna Heads is to visit the East Head Café where you can have a wonderful meal and some refreshing beverages while taking in the tranquility and soothing colours of the ocean view.
