Knysna`s Wayside Inn has been a landmark in the center of this well-known holiday town since its humble beginnings in the early 1990`s.
The development of Pledge Square was a major improvement for Knysna, and brought a vibey and lively atmosphere to this previously sleepy part of town. Now, a mere 20-something years later, Pledge Square is still known for its restaurants and pubs, with quaint shops open during the day.
The Wayside Inn`s central location is to this date a major attraction for those who wish to walk into town for a drink or bite to eat. The famous Knysna Waterfront, and nearby Thesen Island, with its ferry trips on the Knysna Lagoon, sailing charters for those more romantically inclined, and whale watching trips going through the famous Knysna Heads (in season: June to November mostly) are all withing walking distance.
