When it comes to asking the most important question of your life, there are no limits as to what it takes to create a perfect moment. From intimate restaurants to picturesque beaches, there is no destination up to the task than the ocean-side town of Knysna. Whether you want to shout it from the rooftops or whisper under the stars, there are countless places to pop the question. Keep reading for a few of the best proposal spots in Knysna.

On the Beach

Did you know that there are six Blue Flag beaches within a 50km from Knysna? Drop the knee at sunset on Buffalo Bay, get sneaky about it and disguise your proposal with a walk on Brenton-on-Sea or opt for a romantic picnic-for-two at Bollard Beach on Leisure Island.

Aboard a Romantic Lagoon Cruise

Imagine being out on the ocean with nothing but the fresh sea air, panoramic views of the Knysna Heads, a bottle of bubbles and your significant other. The team at Turbine Waterclub will be delighted to assist you in planning a picture-perfect proposal cruise along the lagoon, ensuring that everything is taken care of.

At the ‘Heads’

The highlight of any trip to Knysna is a trip to the viewpoint at the famous Knysna Heads. If you’re new to the area, the ‘Heads’ are two large sandstone columns that stand side by side at the mouth of the Knysna Lagoon, where the Knysna River meets the Indian Ocean. On the eastern side, on Coney Glen Road, overlooking the narrow channel where the sea bursts through is a secluded viewpoint. The awe-inspiring vista offers an idyllic setting for your big moment.

In a Quirky Restaurant

If you’re looking for a little more privacy, we have just the spot for you. The Turbine Hotel & Spa was once an old power station, and the onside restaurant has been designed around lovingly-restored machinery from that time. The result is a quirky, retro feel and a venue unlike any other along the Garden Route. Our culinary team would be more than happy to arrange a candlelit dinner where you won’t have to share your moment with other restaurant-goers. See below for stunning spots in our restaurant.
