Swim among the penguins at Boulders Beach

Swim among the penguins at Boulders Beach

After you have fallen in love with Cape Town’s penguin colony, head to the secluded Boulders Beach and take a swim in the comparatively warm waters of the False Bay. This beach is ideal for kids as immense boulders shelter the cove from currents, wind and large waves .

Warning: Please  don’t touch or feed the penguins. They might look cute and cuddly but their beaks are as sharp and if they feel threatened they have no qualms about nipping the odd finger or nose as Boulders Beach is a breading area.
