+27 21 786 2329
Boulders Beach is located just outside Simon’s Town, another of the city’s picture-perfect coastal villages. It is home to a rare land-based African penguin colony, and provides a unique opportunity to see these lovable little birds up close. Now highly endangered, African penguins are endemic to Southern Africa and are well-adapted to life north of the Antarctic Circle. After paying a small conservation fee, the Boulders Beach walkway leads you through the colony, allowing you to see the penguins on their nests without disturbing their daily routine. From a viewing platform overlooking the beach, you can watch them swimming, fishing, mating and playing.
Cost: ZAR 70 per adult/ ZAR 35 per child
