One of Cape Town’s most visited beaches, the beautiful Boulders Beach is the only place in the world where you can get very close to the African Penguins. It is presently a part of the Table Mountain National Park, thus ensuring the beaches are safe and clean, and the penguins protected. There are three wheelchair-friendly boardwalks that can accommodate nearly 60,000 visitors. These boardwalks provide great viewing spots and also protect nesting penguins and their chicks. You can still spot one or two of the little fellows waddling through the site's parking lot from time to time. Boulders Beach is also a popular family-friendly swimming beach, an ideal place where kids can climb over the boulders and explore the rock pools, or swim in the amazing bay water.
It is more than 40 Km from the city center. You can reach by bus, cab or train.
