Boulders Beach Pinguin colony. Rand 153,- pp entrance fee. Plenty of penguins to see without entering the park!


Why? By checking in after you've visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.

Nice and well maintained ... but outrageously expensive: at R170 and 4x the rate for locals it is an insane overcharge. I only give two points because it is well maintained.
If you want to see the penguins, go to Betty‘ Bay: there are more of them there, the setting is more natural ... and entrance fee is only R25!

Report Check-In

Entry is an astonishing R153 pp now, extremely overpriced. Just walk in the path next to the entrance, we saw dozens of pinguins in their nests with eggs or chicks. No need to pay entrance here

If you turn down Seaforth Road, there is free parking and a free beach where you can see penguins. It's before Boulders Beach when coming from Cape Town.

No need to pay. Just walk around. You see enough

Rand 70,- pp for the beach itself, prior to the entrance there's a route to the right where you can see penguins as well for free.

But we enjoyed the beach side :) it is a small park though.
