More info about Thesen Islands
The Thesen Islands are in the seaside town of Knysna in the Western Cape and have several residential marina developments. The land was originally occupied by a timber factory, relocated to protect the sensitive ecosystems around the islands. A strict building code was enforced on developers to retain the natural beauty of the islands. The result is a magnificent neighbourhood of homes positioned over the lagoon, all with patios and private jetties, and accessed by arched bridges crisscrossing the islands.
The Thesen Islands are part of the Garden Route, one of South Africa’s top tourist destinations. The natural riches along this stretch of the southern coast is often likened to Eden.
The Islands were named after a Norwegian settler Thesen who arrived in 1869 and built a timber processing and shipbuilding empire. They are included in the 15000ha Knysna National Lake Conservation Area.
