Leisure Isle

Welcome to a quaint oasis set on the vast Knysna lagoon.

The idyllic picture postcard scene is the reality of everyday life on Leisure Isle. With a guarded entrance, Leisure Isle is linked to the mainland by a narrow causeway. This means that the island is a haven of peace and tranquillity. Here, life is enjoyed at a relaxed pace... cars drive slowly along winding, leafy roads. Kids ride bicycles freely and residents enjoy daily sunset walks or rides around the scenic 4km periphery of the secure island. Holiday makers relax on sun-drenched beaches or swim in the crystal-clear waters of the lagoon.

Leisure Isle boasts an antique shop/art gallery, a coffee shop, a fine dining restaurant and a small boat harbour. Its own nature reserve makes for good bird watching and the island is surrounded by awesome scenery. Less than 10 minutes’ drive from the centre of Knysna, Leisure Isle is perfectly situated for you 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 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 everyone with unpretentious warmth and sincere hospitality.
