A favourite thing to do on any visit to South Africa is to visit Cape Town penguins at Boulders Beach, Simon’s Town. The best place is from the boardwalk between Seaforth and Boulders, where you can get fairly close as they waddle around in their dinner jackets, without disturbing them.
From Simon’s Town on the False Bay (east) side of the Cape Peninsula, continue south towards Seaforth and turn left into Seaforth Road. Leave your vehicle in the parking area at the bottom of the road, just above Seaforth beach. From here, walk about two blocks to the visitor information centre at the start of the boardwalk, which takes you to the best viewing point on Foxy Beach. There is an entrance fee unless you present your Wild Card.
