Swim with Penguins African Penguins need to eat too! Boulders Beach is probably the most beautiful beach in the world where you can swim with penguins hunting for their food.  Situated just footsteps from the lodge, is Boulders Coastal Park, home of the African Jackass Penguins.
Surrounded by nature The playground of the Beautiful South, stretching towards CapePoint.   Boulders Beach is at the far left, near Whale Rock, which is the white dot in the ocean. Historic Simonstown is in the centre.
Boulders Beach Restaurant From humble beginnings, and after a period of being one of Simon's Town's best kept secrets, Boulders Beach Restaurant has grown to be recognised as one of the top restaurants in the area. Our menu
