Boulders Beach must be one of the most beautiful beaches in the Cape and home to the endangered African Penguin. There are some 570 pairs of these adorable little critters, so you can be guaranteed to see several of them wallowing in the sun or just going about there daily business any time of the day you decide to visit. Boulders beach is the perfect beach to swim or snorkel at, it is safe for kids or weak swimmers and offers excellent shelter from the South East wind that blows regularly in summer.
