About Leisure Isle - Knysna



· A tiny haven set on the vast Knysna Lagoon ·


The idyllic picture postcard scene is an everyday reality of life on Leisure Isle. Linked to the mainland by a narrow causeway, Leisure Isle is a haven of peace and tranquillity. Here, life is enjoyed at a relaxed pace... cars drive slowly along twisting roads, kids ride bicycles freely, residents enjoy daily sunset walks/rides around the scenic 4km periphery and holiday makers relax on sun-drenched beaches or swim in the crystal clear waters of the lagoon.


Leisure Isle also boasts an art gallery, a fine dining restaurant, a small boat harbour and its own nature reserve, good bird-watching and awesome scenery. Less than 10 minutes drive from the centre of Knysna, Leisure Isle is perfectly positioned to take full advantage of all that the town and its environs have to offer while maintaining seclusion and safety.


The charm and ambience of Leisure Isle also lies in the haphazard juxtaposition of the old and the new, reflecting its long history and the changes in architectural style as well as the affluence of its residents. Grand mansions and villas sit comfortably alongside modest seaside cottages. Leisure Isle welcomes all with unpretentious warmth and hospitality.
