If you are seeking a leisurely day, Headlands House is a great starting point.
Take a quiet stroll down to Coney Glen Beach and put your toes in the Indian Ocean (swimming not recommended here).
The famous Knysna Heads Viewpoint is literally a two minute walk away and has spectacular views of the lagoon, Heads and ocean.
Or enjoy a dip in our swimming pool and catch a few rays while lying on one of our sun loungers and watching the ocean below.
Keep an eye out for the local birds that pop in to our bird feeding station for a quick snack or a drink.
For those who like to indulge in a little pampering, ask one of our professional staff to book an in-house treatment for you.
