lovely to see the penguins pottering about.... but don't think should have to pay to enter the beach to see them....
At firs I didn't know what to expect of the penguins since it was included in the day tour in Cape Town. When we arrived here I instant understood why it's included in the tour. The penguins are the cutest ever. The stand there, holding hand, swimming around, chilling and really loves the camera. It's not 5-10 penguins, it's LOTS!... More
It is nice to visit this for one time, if you want to see penguins in the flesh. However they are not the most stunning ones and you also need to be lucky to actually see them in action. They just lie there and be penguins. Some swim and others are changing their feathers, but all in all ... they're... More
Be enchanted by the protected African Penguins at Boulders Beach - and watch yourself beam from ear to ear at their capers and personalities!
This is on the drive to the Cape of Good Hope, and it is the place to see penguins--lots of penguins. And you can get up close and personal with them. In South Africa, they call them "African Penguins," but elsewhere they are called "jackass penguins" because of the sound they make.
Lovely small beach. At high tide you may even swim with the penguins. Ideal for children. Swim between the boulders. Very picturesque and ideal for a family picnic.
I am not a great beach person! I am not fond of crowds, I don't like swimming in the sea, and am not on friendly terms with the summer sun! However, Boulder's Beach manages to lure me there! It can be a bit crowded in season, but the delightful squeals of children, the crystal clear waters and the impressive boulders... More
Great small beach. If you go during high tide you may see more penguins. During low tide there may be less, but you have the chance to climb/swim around the boulders and find a small piece of beach just for yourselve. R55 to get in, but absolutely worth it. There are bathrooms as well, but no showers. Don't sit on... More
Fantastic spot to take the little ones to. Plus there are penguins for them to see. Get there early and check the high and low tide times before you head out for the day. You don't want to get caught by the waves coming in while having to pack up kids and picnic baskets. There's an entry fee per person...... More
Cost R55 /person for entrance. Keep the ticket as there are two separate access points. Main sign posted car park takes you to the mass-tourist section, you walk around on fenced platforms around beach. You get to see the penguins, some of them very close but restricted to the paths. More interesting and intimate part is from the 2nd car... More
