Beautiful secluded beach surrounded by enormous boulders and home to penguins
Go early, avoid the crowds, the experience is delightful. Seeing the penguins roost.
Wild African Penguins swim with you
Boulders Beach, great for beach and nature lovers. See the seal and penguin colonies.
Nestled in sheltered coves, Boulders has a thriving colony of African Penguins. Although set in a residential area, it is one of the few sites that you can observe penguins at a close range wandering freely in a protected natural area. Make sure to explore the other beaches just after the main area where the penguins stay mostly. They are beautiful and more protected from the wind, you can even sunbathe and swim on a sunny day!
Absolutely amazing experience, sharing a beach with penguins and some breath taking views
Saw lot of penguins @ Boulders Beach, we stopped here for a bit to walk to the Penguin colony.
Great place to visit, hang out on the beach with the penguins.Spot of a advice here. Most tourists will actually end up in an area where you cannot get among them. If you find yourself next to a new looking tourist information building you are in the wrong place. You can still see penguins here in fact many more. But you will be restricted to walking above them on a wooden walkway above the rocks where the penguins nest.No problem, once you have had a good look, head south on the wooden path and you will get to another small booth, here you can come down to the actual beach, it's only a 2 min walk or so. Here you can get into the water and here the penguins will be right next to you.
