Boulders Beach

Penguins, penguins, penguins

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing Cape Town holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

Boulders Beach is the perfect place to get to know the adorable African penguins who have made the granite boulders and ancient landscape their home.

Thousands of travellers head here each year to enjoy the soft white sands and warm waters as well as meet the famous penguin colony, the only penguins to be found on the continent. Head down one of the three boardwalks to get a great view of the cheeky chaps waddling around the rocks, or visit Foxy Beach for a more up-close experience. 

The waters surrounding the beach are calm enough to swim in so why not take a dip too?
