A favourite thing to do on any visit to Cape Town is to visit African 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 or their beach digs.
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. Entrance is R65 per adult, R35 per child, but free if you present your Wild Card.
