Great viewpoints for viewing the heads. The views are truly spectacular especially during the sunset. Definite must do in Knysna, there is a small free carpark but we tipped the guy to look after our car.

That's a very special and breathtaking scenery! You can go to the viewpoint in the top of the mountain just to admire the incredible view of the Heads, the sea and Knysna Lagoon! It's so beautiful!
