It is a popular tourist spot because of a colony of African penguins which settled there in 1982. Boulders Beach forms part of the Table Mountain National Park.

Can you swim on Boulders Beach?

It is a soft, fine white sand beach with large granite boulders on both sides. Look out for Rock hyraxes, referred to locally as ‘dassies’, on the boulders.

There are also semi-submerged boulders in the water which create a sheltered cove and make this site suitable for swimming on all but the stormiest of days.
