  • In itself this place is less touristic and less expensive than Boulders beach. On the day we were there, it blew very hard. As a result, there were fewer penguins to see and we were struggling to stand still. It remains very nice to see these animals up close!

  • You could see and observe the animals wonderfully from a jetty. Admission was small, so it was also well affordable for the whole family. We were there during the autumn holidays. It was no problem finding a parking space and walking along the aisle. It wasn't crowded. Apart from the penguins, there were also cliff slippers, cormorants and geese.

  • Beautiful spot to observe penguin mating area. Lots of penguins up close with very few tourists.
  • Nice place to watch penguins. In our opinion it is nicer than boulders beach because there are not so many people and more penguins.
