There is no question that the 3,000 African penguins who hang out here own this piece of Simon’s Town; you just get to visit. Walkways along this seashore keep you from disturbing the nesting sites but you still get very close to these bold and captivating birds. Few things are more adorable than a penguin. A whole colony of them can overwhelm the brain’s cuteness receptor but Boulder’s Beach is worth the risk.

Penguin Beach Story
11982, fishermen in Simons town The penguins were first discovered here. After expert analysis, they are most likely to drift from the Antarctic through the dangers. Under the protection of local residents and the government, penguins have continued to multiply, and the number has now exceeded 3,000.
2 African penguins don't have to endure the cold like the distant relatives of the Antarctic penguins, and they are struggling to find food. They shake their bodies and enjoy the pleasant climate of South Africa. When they are hungry, they dive into the sea to find sardines and anchovies; when they are sleepy, they lie down. Take a nap on the silver-white beach. The embarrassing look is really fascinating.

From the Cape Town area, there is basically no public transportation in Penguin Beach. It is recommended that you have a taxi or self-driving, half an hour from the city centre of Cape Town.
Seeing penguins in the natural environment is much more comfortable than in a cage. The sidewalks are great for watching penguins in the jungle and beaches. Although overcrowded, it does not affect everyone's mood to watch the penguins. There is a little penguin who completely ignores human beings. When he wants to walk into the crowd, several children follow along the way, so that the power of the wild will restrain their hands from touching or hugging. For animal lovers, this is a very unique experience.
