Visiting Boulders Beach and the African penguin colony is not to be missed. Such a beautiful setting and hundreds of penguins to see in their natural habitat. Great photo opportunities and a joy to watch the penguins up close.

This is an incredible attraction. Once you enter the park, you can view the penguins from the boardwalk and observation decks. You may also head down to the beach and come face to face with the lil creatures on the beach or amongst the boulders.
