Thesen Island Reviews
A hidden gem
We loved Thesen Island. There are so many things to see and experience. My kids loved it, the adults loved it. We all felt very safe and secure. We went for lovely walks and found cafes and restaurants suitable for everybody. There's a great mix of serenity with a bit of action. We will definitely be back.
Thesen Island offers something for everyone, from seclusion to the hussle and bustle of shopping and restaurants. Kids have a ball exploring the area which is safe, clean and full of secret hideaways from the wild bird hide to the maze of climbing roses. The water quality and facilities have qualified Thesen Island as a pilot Blue Flag marina. These protected waterways enable all sorts of water sports, in particular canoeing and SUP, boating, fishing and house hunting! The birdlife is staggering, from kingfishers to owls, the island has something for everyone.

The waterways and small bridges make it a magical place. We took long walks around the islands and our kids (aged 7 and 9) loved the various play areas and small beaches. Thesen Islands is the perfect location to explore all that the Garden Route has to offer.It was great to have restaurants within walking distance. The food at Tapas wasn't the best we've ever had, but the location, atmosphere and good service made up for it. The...see more
