Boulders Bay is located in the Cape Peninsula near Cape Town, South Africa. The area comprises a number of small sheltered bays, partially enclosed by granite boulders that are 540 million years old.
A colony of African Penguins settled there in 1982. It is one of the few sites where this endangered bird can be observed at close range, wandering freely in a protected natural environment. From just two breeding pairs, the penguin colony has grown to about 3,000 in recent years.
