These rocks are named after the rounded boulders which shelter a beautiful swimming beach from the mischievous south-easterly winds. A part of Table Mountain National Park, Boulders Beach gives a unique opportunity to swim with Jackass (African) penguins. Find the main penguin colony at Foxy Beach next to the swimming beach where there is an attractive boardwalk. The friendly park staff will be happy to answer any questions. Although these penguins are among the most human-tolerant in the world, they can inflict a severe bite if their space is invaded, or they feel threatened. It is smart to maintain a safe distance of at least a meter from the birds. Visitors can also see a variety of other birds at Boulders. These include the African Black Oyster-catcher and the Crowned Cormorant plus numerous species of smaller birds.
