Boulders Beach – Penguin’s Paradise

Boulders Beach is all about the Penguins! With it’s pristine beach, clear water and plenty of penguins, it’s not surprising that more than 60 000 visitors flock to Boulders Beach every year

Boulders Beach, with its wind sheltered bays and safe sandy shores, is home to a breeding colony of over 2000 endangered African Penguins. Only 50 minutes from Cape Town, a trip to Boulders Beach is well worth a visit.

Book a tour, enjoy the scenic journey and enjoy a few hours amongst these little guys. It’s great fun to watch the tuxedo clad penguins go about their daily routines of sunning themselves, guarding their nests or waddling across the beach.

At Boulders Beach, the penguins have adapted quite well to camera-wielding humans.

They walk and nest undisturbed just a few feet away from the thousands of visitors that visit every year. But, as cute as they look they can be quite feisty, so don’t try to feed them!

If you’re travelling with kids, be prepared to stay a while: the water is safe for swimming, there are rock pools to explore and granite boulders to climb on – it really is the perfect spot for a family beach picnic.
