Noetzie Beach is a hidden gem on the Garden Route, known for its pristine, unspoiled beauty. The beach offers soft golden sands, perfect for leisurely strolls, sunbathing, and building sandcastles with the family. What makes Knoetzie genuinely unique is its oyster culture. You can enjoy a delightful oyster picnic, sampling some of the finest locally harvested oysters. The salty flavour of these molluscs pairs perfectly with the sea breeze and stunning coastal views. Knysna boasts some of the most scenic golf courses in the world. Tee off with lush forests, rolling hills and picturesque lagoons as your backdrop. Due to our cooperation with the Pezula Championship Golf Course we can offer fabulous packages and preferred tee times. As the ultimate adventure we recommend a private whale watching tour. The experienced skipper starts in Knysna Lagoon and leads you through the breaking waves.
