Swimming with Penguins at Boulders Beach

Although most of the areas of Boulders Beach are "strictly for penguins" there was also a little beach between the rocks where you can relax or have a swim. The penguins will walk freely in Boulders beach so don´t be surprised if one of them jumps in the water without warning. I almost had a heart attack when one of them jump behind me and swam the speed of light near my legs. The cute penguins will stand next to you as you try to swim. I was there in April and the water was really nice. It was a really fun experience that I recommend to everyone!!! [more ]

Cute Penguins at Boulders Beach

A visit to Boulders Beach will definitely make your day! It was pretty crowded when we went but with a little bit of patience you will find a nice spot to watch the penguins. The penguins have their own private beach but some of them will walk along the people so you may have to be extra watchful not to step in them. A woman was taking a shot of a friend and almost step in one, who loudly protested. It is really nice to watch them coming out of the water and then sleeping in the sand: if you love penguins you will adore this place!!! Kids will love this activity guaranteed! [more ]

Boulders beach, Simon's Town, South Africa

A must visit on the very scenic Peninsula drive to Cape Point is the hidden away Boulders Beach, home to a very large population of Jackass penguins. These creatures have grown used to humans in their habitat, so they don’t mind your presence. In fact, you can even go swim with them in the waves – if you can stand the icy water! The small beach itself is very pretty, and enclosed by large granite boulders (where its name comes from). You really can take very pretty pictures here. Because the beach is situated inside a protected area, there is a small entrance fee (less than EUR 2,0). If you don’t want to go inside, then there’s a walkway all around that still makes it possible to see the penguins and the views. Very clean toilets are placed along this walkway. [more ]
