Boulders Beach is one of the most beautiful places to experience when visiting South Africa, not only because of the most beautiful penguins but because of the amazing work the South African government is doing to help the penguin colony.


Where is Boulders Bay?
Like I said, Boulders Bay is about a 40 minute drive from the center of Cape Town. Drive south along the Cape Peninsula and follow signs for Simon’s Town.


How much is admission?
The entrance to the beach costs 60 South African Rand, which is equivalent to about 3 pounds sterling / 4.50 dollars / 4 euros.


How does it look like?
This is the most exciting part. Let me show you.

Walking from Boulders Beach to Foxy Beach is (as I said) a doddle – walk these prescribed trails and you’ll NEVER get lost.
