Leisure Isle Lodge
- 87 Bayswater Drive, Leisure Isle, Knysna, 6570, Western Cape
A charming retreat in the middle of the world renowned Knysna lagoon, Leisure Isle brings postcard images of idyllic beach breakaways to life. Beautiful Bollard Bay Beach, directly opposite Leisure Isle Lodge, is but one of the spotless beaches offering safe swimming in the sparkling Knysna lagoon. Supplement your tan under one of our umbrellas on the beach, explore the lagoon in one of our kayaks or spoil yourself with a luxury champagne sundowner cruise.
Should you wish to be a bit more active, then order your gourmet picnic during breakfast and discover the island on one of our bicycles. Leisure Isle boasts a small boat harbour, tennis and bowls clubs, an art gallery and antique store, rolling parklands and its own nature reserve – ideal for that romantic or family picnic. The island is also a natural paradise for a host of small wildlife and birds.
Barely 10 minutes’ drive from the Knysna CBD, Leisure Isle is the perfect spot from where to explore the treasure trove of experiences on offer in Knysna and the surrounding Garden Route towns.
The indigenous forest and surrounding fynbos offer adrenalin junkies challenging trail running and single track mountain biking routes, or enjoy a leisurely stroll and marvel at the giant trees and lush undergrowth. Keep your eye out for the elusive Knysna Loerie and, of course, the mystical forest elephant. Or simply visit the elephants and other animals at one of the many animal sanctuaries in the vicinity.
