This picturesque area with a number of enormous boulders dividing sandy coves is home to a colony of 2800 delightful African penguins. A boardwalk runs from the visitor centre at the Foxy Beach end of the protected area (another part of Table Mountain National Park) to Boulders Beach, where you can get down onto the sand and mingle with the waddling penguins.
