  • Awesome place! The Penguins are really cute and funny and there‚Äôs many of them. You can really enjoy it without paying but if you want to see a little bit more it costs 25R pp. would really recommend to visit and see all those cute funny fellas.
  • The Stony Point Penguin Colony and Nature Reserve is situated on Betty's Bay. Depending on which part of the colony you're visiting, it has gorgeous views of the bay and the open ocean. When I visited on a sunny but windy day, penguins huddled in various corners of the reserve, especially those that provided them shelter from the wind, while still allowing them open exposure to the sun. My visit provided me with my first sight of a penguin in the wild. The feeling was quite a bit more intense than expected.
