Knysna is a romantic paradise. This dreamy coastal town will sweep even the toughest critic off their feet. The town’s natural beauty makes it the perfect place for couples to enjoy time together, strolling hand-in-hand along white sandy beaches, hiking through enchanted indigenous forests, picnicking in magical spots or enjoying candlelit dinners with some of the best views South Africa has to offer.
The Milkwood Collection offers unique accommodation options near the famous Knysna Heads, with direct access to the gorgeous beach on the Knysna lagoon where peaceful views and glorious sunrises and sunsets never fail to enthral.
Sixteen cosy self-catering chalets lie nestled amidst leafy vegetation and indigenous Milkwood trees. Enjoy private, candle-lit dinners whilst relaxing by a cosy fire on your private deck. Take a romantic stroll to the Heads or along the lagoon at low tide. The tranquil setting and breathtaking views will make your honeymoon stay a special one to remember.
Romantic things to do:
