Bollard Bay is Leisure Isle’s secret treasure.

It is set on the Knysna Lagoon, which is a safe-haven for young swimmers.

In the off-peak season mostly the local residents and avid dog walkers frequent the beach.

During the summer it becomes a vibrant, kid-friendly venue. 

While gazing through the Heads to the Indian Ocean and looking over at Featherbed, you will hear the constant babble and laughter of children who can safely play at the water’s edge. Water sports abound and many “sports adventure” companies will leave from this area.

During high-tide, this little beach is great for swimming and is perfect for the kids as there are few currents and no waves. The water is relatively shallow until you go quite deep in, so you can wade knee-height for some time before having to swim– perfect for the more cautious swimmer.


Bollard Bay Beach on Leisure Island in Knysna offers a family friendly and pet friendly place to visit. The attractive surroundings and beautiful views certainly make it feel as though you are away in paradise. The soft white sand is such a pleasure to walk on and the water is safe for swimmers of all ages, with plenty of shallower areas for the youngsters.

The beach at Bollard Bay is an ideal location for a picnic with your friends or that someone special and certainly a perfect place for those beach ball games we all enjoy so much. During low tide you can walk right along the sand, up to the Knysna Heads where you will find many areas to explore as well as lots of fascinating sea creatures to discover.

During high tide the area is an ideal place for those wanting to fish or for water sport fanatics enjoying activities such as boating, kite-boarding, windsurfing, canoeing, sailing and of course swimming. Bollard Bay Beach can entertain all, young or old and is certainly worth the trip.


Bollard Bay Beach is 15 min drive out of town and with your guide you will explore the beach that stretches for 3km along the Island shoreline.

The guide will set up your umbrella together with your carefully prepared picnic basket and blanket
