The Garden Route and the Little Karoo Sights

Leisure Isle

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 11/14/2014

Fodor's Review

In the middle of the Knysna lagoon, Leisure Isle has a few tiny strands of beach but is essentially a low-lying island populated with vacation and residential homes. The surrounding mudflats of the lagoon provide bait for the local fisherfolk. For those lucky enough to stay here, the best views are out toward The Heads of Knysna, but the only swimming to be had is knee-height paddling. Amenities: parking. Best for: solitude; swimming; windsurfing.
