Breakfast in the open area of the East Heads Cafe is just out of this world. Service can be a bit slow when busy but the view makes the wait worthwhile.

Stunning views of the Knysna lagoon on one side and the Indian ocean on the other. There is a safe bricked walkway with wooden balustrades along the edge to keep you falling off which is good, as the beach is a long way down. Whales...More
