  • Place to unwind and appreciate nature ... beautiful scenic view with the penguin and very informative about the stony point location...  more »
  • Aside from the penguins, there is a lot of interesting bird life, dassies and reptiles. We thoroughly enjoyed walking through the nesting penguins, spotting the babies and a few still sitting on eggs....  more »
  • We went because it was on our way to the Stony Point Penguin Colony and were pleasantly surprised. We had not expected so many subjects. You could walk on long boardwalks along and was so among the penguins, who were very trusting. In between there were signs with statements again and again, so that it was sufficiently informed. We have saved us then boulders Beach, Cape Peninsula there to visit plenty of other things.
