Knysna is a town in the heart of South Africa's beautiful Garden Route just East of Cape Town. Knysna lies nestled in between the Outeniqua Mountains and the Indian Ocean.

1. Enjoy the Beach
If the tide is in, there's very safe swimming at Bollard Beach on Leisure Isle. It's also got a sandy beach ideal for sand castles. At the bottom end of the island, there's a grassy, shady picnic site with BBQ facilities and toilets. If you want a very long romantic walk along the beach, you can walk all the way from Brenton-on-Sea to Buffalo Bay (about five miles).
2. Fabled Forest
Knysna is surrounded by patches of state forest in which there are paths of varying lengths. Pick up a map at Knysna Tourism (phone 044-382-5510) and a permit at the forest entrance.
If you're a mountain-biker, there are various routes to explore in the state forests. At Millwood, there's the 19km Homtini Cycle Route which starts at the Krisjan-se-nek picnic site. In Diepwalle, there's the 24km Petrus-se-brand Cycle Route which ends at the Garden-of-Eden.
