Knysna has been chosen as South Africa's favorite town twice in a row and only last year lost their title to Mossel Bay. It is surrounded by indigenous forests, mountains and the Knysna Lagoon. The town's most prominent landmark is the Knysna Heads situated at the entrance into the lagoon from the sea. Knysna has so much to do and see. The area is a haven for artists and many of their wares can be found in the town's abundance of curio shops and art studios. Visitors can do anything from cruises on the lagoon to slow walks in the forests. The Knysna Lagoon is one of the best growing areas for oysters in South Africa and many of the local restaurants serve it. Its an aphrodisiac, you know?
