It was formerly a fishing village and has managed to maintain its unique combination of fishing harbour and country atmosphere, despite development. Surrounded by soft, powdery sand dunes, turquoise waters, and magnificent mountain ranges, there is no doubt in anyone's mind why beach is so popular among locals and holidaymakers in the Cape.

Stop At: Boulders Beach Penguin Colony, Simon's Town 7995 South Africa

Guests will visit Boulders Beach which is the home to a growing Colony of vulnerable African Penguins. Known as Jackass Penguins because of their distinctive donkey-like braying, and they're the only penguins found on the continent. Their diet consists mainly of pelagic fish such as pilchards and anchovy, but they may consume squid as well. They can swim at an average speed of seven Kilometres per hour, and can stay submerged for up to two minutes. Colonies can be found from Southern Namibia all the way around the Southern African coast to Port Elisabeth, but few places offer as remarkable a viewing point as Boulders Beach. The Penguins first came to False Bay in 1983 from Dyer Island, which is near Gansbaai. Back then, there plenty for them to eat and the colony grew so quick. Unfortunately, commercial fishing and marine pollution have taken their toll on the colony. In 1910, it was estimated that there were approximately one-and-a-half million African Penguins; a Century later, the aquatic bird was classified as an endangered species. By 1982 there were only two breeding pairs remaining. Incredible conservation efforts have grown the Boulders Colony to over 3500 birds in recent years.You can experience walking with penguins or choose the wooden walkways which allow you to view the penguins in their Natural Habitat in a close Range.

Muizenberg is located on the North-Western corner of False Bay, about 25 Km from Cape Town CBD.Muizenberg rightly earned the Town its status as the country's premier Holiday Retreat in the 19th Century. Historical sites in Muizenberg includes the Oldest Building on the False Bay Coast known as Het Posthuys(1742), originally used by the Ducth East India Company as a Toll-House to levy a tax on farmers selling their produce to passing ships. Despite the slight air of tawdriness, Muizenberg's gently shelving, Sandy Beach is the most popular along the Peninsula for swimming...with good reason. It's safe for bathing, the water tends to be flat and warm and there's good surfing in its breakers, friendly-family atmosphere. The waves are not too powerful for body boarding, surfing...

Just back from our fantastic tour of sone incredible beauty spots in Cape Town - we were collected from our hotel at 8am and from start to finish we had an amazing experience. Our your guide was Albert and he was exceptional- he had so much local knowledge of the areas we visited and kept us interested all day. It was fun and informative in equal measure. Albert made us feel very welcome and knew the exact places to stop for the best views plus he knew the angles for the best photos. We stopped off for a beautiful lunch in Simon’s Town and all in all it was a very memorable day.
