Charming Chaps

Visitors to this idyllic stretch of shoreline can observe one of the world's most beloved seabird species: the African penguin. With its sheltered coves and granite boulders dotting the sandy shores, Boulders Beach provides the perfect backdrop for an up-close encounter with these charismatic creatures.

An Endangered Species

African penguins face numerous threats in the wild, including habitat loss, overfishing, and oil spills. Through dedicated conservation efforts and public awareness campaigns, organisations like the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds (SANCCOB) work tirelessly to protect and rehabilitate these endangered birds and ensure their survival for future generations.

Penguin Preservation

In addition to observing African penguins in their natural habitat, you can enjoy a range of recreational activities, including swimming, sunbathing, and exploring the network of boardwalks that wind through the coastal vegetation. Whether basking in the sun on the sandy shores or admiring the coastal views across the bay, Boulders Beach will leave you with an everlasting appreciation for the conservation of the African penguin.
