I drive past this viewpoint daily (and stop often) - either on my bicycle or in my car and it never ceases to amaze me. We are fortunate enough to live in one of the most beautiful parts of the world and this is one of the best places from which to enjoy that beauty.

Every visitor to Knysna should make a point of visiting this great viewpoint to appreciate its splendour. On the way to Brenton-on-Sea.

You have to see this and take photos from this point. You get the best view of the lagoon from here.

Views over the Knysna Lagoon and a worth-while stop if in the area. Just a view stop, nothing much else. Felt safe and lawn neatly mowed. It's just past the good Pembreys restaurant, and on the road to Brenton. If passing by you can just stop for just a minute to soak in the views.

With all the water in the area, long distance viewing often gets hazy... BUT not this past Sunday. It was a glorious day, the kind where you don't want to go to heaven because you're already there... in sunny Knysna :) The views towards the Outeniqua Mountains and across the Knysna Estuary to town were both magnificent.

Nice easy roadside stop on way to Brenton-on-sea. Nice for pictures over the lagoon looking towards Knysna and over Belvidere.

This is simply a viewpoint at the side of the road that leads to Brenton-on-Lake and Brenton-on-Sea. Pull over to admire the lagoon views from the side of the lagoon opposite to the town itself.

Magnificent view point, quiet secluded and peaceful, park you vehicle and float like a bird overlooking the lagoon, the town and the mountains, day or night ... a must see on your agenda .....

When driving to Brenton on Sea and onward to George, take the time to experience the panorama at Margaret's Viewpoint. A stunning, high up view of Knysna lagoon and the town. A lovely experience on a blue sky day.
