Boulders Beach – South Africa

It’s hard to imagine penguins thriving naturally in a warm climate at their own will. In Simon’s Town, right outside of Cape Town is a small strip of beach where African penguins have made their year-round home. Visitors can watch them from a nearby observatory deck and take great pleasure in watching them frolic in and out of the sea. While you can’t swim with them in the cordoned off area, nearby is a public beach available for swimming and it’s not uncommon to find a penguin or two paying a visit.
