    The most stunning beach, with the most incredible wildlife! There are not many beaches in the world which have white sand, a bright blue ocean and penguins! This is an absolute must visit when in South Africa. I adore this beach.

    This is the main penguin watching beach, which you have to pay to access. Well worth paying for, there are so many penguins!

    Anywhere I can go and watch the penguins is a fun spot to me. Parking can be difficult very busy times but they do have an attendant. Toilets, cafe and beautifully picturesque space.

    We came here with Dive Team, it was our first shore based diving and we can highly recommend this beach. I was easy to enter and navigate and the Kelp forest were amazing. We were very surprised when we found out this was where the Octopus Teacher was filmed and made the dive even more special.

    Situated close to Boulders Beach, this beach is truly lovely. A nice spot for relaxation, beachgoing, or other outdoor nature activities. You might even see the blow of a whale in the distance.
