Leisure Island, or Leisure Isle as it is more commonly known, seems like a picture postcard scene but it is actually an everyday reality of life on the island. Surrounded on all sides by the waters of the tidal Knysna estuary, which is ringed by a chain of hills, Leisure Isle is linked to the mainland by a narrow causeway. It is a haven of peace and tranquility, where life is enjoyed at a leisurely pace.
The island is a residential suburb, one of the two island suburbs of Knysna. It is 6 kms from the center of Knysna, and is approached from George Rex Drive. The Island has a total circumference of over 4 kms, is 1.6 kms in length and .5 km across at its widest point. A sea wall surrounds the island, and the ebb and flow of the tides in the lagoon and salt marshes add to its unique character and ensure a constantly changing scene.
Along the shores of the Island lie beaches, parks and areas of protected natural vegetation. Leisure Isle has narrow roads, little lanes and lovely gardens, but the water is never far away, and the matchless views in all directions contribute to the special ambiance of the place and the sense of being at one with nature. The estuary and the Island are home to a rich variety of birds and over 300 species of fynbos. The lifestyle of the Island has always been true to its name, with something for the young, the old and everyone in between. It is a perfect place to enjoy building sandcastles, swimming, boating, sailing, canoeing, windsurfing, kite-boarding and fishing, not to mention walking, jogging, and cycling. Tennis courts, bowling greens and a range of indoor activities add to the choices.
There are about 450 houses on the Island, more than
half of which are occupied by permanent residents. During the holiday season the Islands population swells considerably, and many day visitors also enjoy its facilities.
