Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Beautiful beach, kids loved it. Go early or late (we were there at 10am) before the tour buses arrive.

“Visit here everytime in Cape Town area”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Just love it here, not just for the quiet peaceful beach but for the adorable penguins. A must see in this area. There is a charge but god it is worth every penny. Spend as long as you wish to. My favourite place.

“Cute Penguins”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We visited the Boulders Beach on 5th June 2014 with African Eagle Day Tours. The fee per adult was R55. Adult penguins and baby penguins roaming together everywhere. Kelp could be seen everywhere in the water. It gave us quite an amazing place to visit.

Beautiful place, it was incredible to see the penguins all around, even getting to the gardens in the houses that are almost on the beach! So funny!
