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!

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.
