Thesen Islands Property

The Thesen Islands are a series of 19 man-made islands positioned in the Knysna Estuary. The islands were built to facilitate the development of a luxury gated community, providing residents with a safe, carefree lifestyle while also putting them within walking distance of the resort town of Knysna.

The Thesen Islands are spread over an area of 90 hectares, with the various islands linked by bridges. A causeway and bridge connects the island with the Knysna Mainland. The properties on the island were designed in a colonial, maritime style, which perfectly captures the ambience of the town of Knysna and surrounding landscape.

Both homes and apartments are available on the Thesen Islands, including many with direct access to the estuary or private beaches. These properties are ideal for retirement, holiday homes, and holiday rentals or simply as secure luxury family homes.

Thesen Islands Attractions

The Thesen Islands are ideal for watersports enthusiasts, with marinas found throughout the islands, and many homes featuring a private jetty. 
However, there’s plenty on offer for those who’d prefer to enjoy themselves outside the water, including:
  • Three communal beaches
  • A large park
  • A putting green
  • Tennis courts
  • Bird hides for birdwatching enthusiasts

The many attractions of Knysna are also a stone’s throw away, including shops, restaurants and several top class golf courses.

Thesen Islands Facilities

The Thesen Harbour Town offers residents of the islands access to restaurants, shops, spas, offices, a hotel and a gym. While the islands do not offer residents access to essential services, a wide variety of these are available on the Knysna mainland. These include numerous schools, a post office and a police station, as well as both private and public hospitals.
