Spent two days relaxing here. The beach is clean, the water is fantastic and the views are amazing. Take time off to slow and and enjoy the sunshine with some water activities.

This is a quiet beach along the edge of Leisure Island on the Knysna lagoon. A peaceful beach in a residential area. Enjoy

This is the best beach on Leisure Isle, with about 600 yds of uncrowded (weekdays!) white sand and a stunning view of the Heads. No facilities, but easy parking, dunes (small!) and some shelter if it is windy.
