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. Don’t be tempted to pet them: the penguins have sharp beaks that can cause serious injuries. The sea is calm and shallow in the coves, so Boulders is popular with families and can get extremely crowded, especially on holidays and at weekends.
