Situated on route to Belvidere village and Brenton on Sea, this roadside stop offers spectacular views of Knysna. There are a few benches to sit on and enjoy the views of the lagoon.

This has to be a must do activity. Take a good bottle of wine and a basket of cheese and watch the sunset and sit with Margaret for a while. She will enjoy your company.

From this vantage point you get outstanding views of Knysna and the lagoon . Well worth the stop up the hill on your way to Brenton on Sea.

Everybody raves about the view of Knysna lagoon from the Heads. That must be because they haven't discovered this little pull off on the Brenton on sea road.

This is a viewpoint only. There are no amenities. Shops, rest rooms or other facilities. It's rarely crowded, so parking is easy. The view itself is breathtaking. If you have time to visit simply for a viewpoint, this is a definite must on the list....More

On a clear day or not, Margaret's viewpoint offers an excellent visual of the Knysna Lagoon. We drove pass daily and was a always a pleasure looking out.
