Boulders Bay Beach

Located on Cape Peninsula, Boulders Beach, or sometimes called Boulders Bay, is a sheltered beach made up of inlets between granite boulders and is also part of the Table Mountain National Park. It is famous because it is home to a colony of African penguins.

The penguin colony started in 1982 with only two breeding pairs, and today have grown to a total of over 3,000 birds. Boulders is one of the few sites where we can watch these birds from close range as they move freely in a protected natural environment.
