For the young at heart, Knysna provides late night entertainment at oyster bars, pubs, clubs, taverns and even a "shebeen"
Knysna Movie House in the Main Street has two cinemas and screens a number of recently-released movies daily from 12h00.
The Garden Route has some of the best beaches in the country with soft, white sand and many tidal and rock pools. Beaches closest to Knysna River Club are Bollard Bay at Leisure Isle and Coney Glen at The Eastern Head. Other stunning beaches include Brenton-on-Sea, Buffalo Bay and Noetzie, famous for its castles. The warm currents of the Indian Ocean mean that sea temperatures are pleasant, even in the winter months, but bathers should be aware of rip tides and always pack suntan lotion, drinking water and a hat!
