Out Of Town

Sirocco Restaurant

Situated on the water’s edge of Knysna’s trendy Thesen Harbour Town, Sirocco is evocatively named after the warm wind that blows across the Mediterranean.

Butterfly Blu Restaurant

Directly below the restaurant is a beautiful stretch of white sandy beach and rolling dunes covered with lush fynbos for which this part of the world is so famous.

East Head Café

Situated on the rocks of the famous Eastern Head, East Head Café has the most spectacular view – looking directly through the Knysna Heads.
