                  • Be king of the castle At Craighross you can let your imagination soar as you rule over a mystical kingdom in one of the world’s most beautiful and unspoiled beach locations. The historic, privately owned Noetzie Castles are world famous. Located just 20 minutes from Knysna, their stunning ocean front location and extraordinary design have made them a favourite retreat for the rich and famous – including Nelson Mandela and his family. The stunning sandy beach, rocky outcrops harbouring wild oysters, the meandering Noetzie River and the backdrop of fynbos-covered cliffs are part of a prime nature conservation area. Dolphins, sharks and whales (in season) are regular visitors, as are several species of sea birds and raptors. Access & parking NOTE: Due to the castle’s secluded location, a 4x4 vehicle is advisable. An allotted parking space is provided above the entrance to the beach. Local conservation rules restrict vehicular access to the beach to four journeys per day....moreless
