Famous for its resident colony of African penguins, Boulders Beach offers more than just a typical seaside escape. Nestled against a backdrop of weathered granite boulders, this idyllic stretch of coastline provides sheltered coves and invitingly warm waters, a stark departure from the cooler Atlantic Ocean beaches nearby. It’s a haven where nature flourishes, seamlessly blending wildlife observation with leisurely pursuits.

This accolade spotlights Boulders Beach’s natural splendour and highlights South Africa’s position as a premier travel destination.
