Boulders Beach is located on the Cape Town Peninsula and is a short drive from Cape Town, South Africa. It is home to some of the cutest locals in the world; the endangered African Penguin. A colony of the birds settled here in 1982 and have become one of the most popular tourist attractions in the area since! View the birds within a few feet of their beach habitat and be on the lookout for baby chicks as well.
