  • Beautiful spot to observe penguin mating area. Lots of penguins up close with very few tourists.
  • Nice place to watch penguins. In our opinion it is nicer than boulders beach because there are not so many people and more penguins.
  • We were here already once and few years earlier. Even though on Boulders Beach. This place is less crowded, easily accessible and cheap. Now enjoying the results on our last day in South Africa on the way to Cape Town. Please note that you may stay up to 16.00 to 16.30 in really close. It is therefore useful to be here no later than 15.00 of this fun teenagers to enjoy in their natural habitat.
