One of the many beautiful bays in South Africa. Quiet and peaceful and in walking distance to the private summer house we stayed in. Betty’s bay boasts a penguin colony which we visited early morning. You pay a small fee but get to spend as long as you want watching the penguins enjoying their natural habitat.
We also did a small hike, which was most enjoyable.

This was a very exciting fun place to go if you love penguins! We enjoyed every moment of it and enjoyed seeing all the penguins and Dosie’s! A must go!

All I can say is “it’s just beautiful”. I could walk and relax on this beach all day 💕. White sands, blue ocean and the sunsets are stunning 😍

This is only on of a few places in South Africa where you can see wild penguins. We arrived just as the Stoney Point Nature Reserve area was closing but it didn't matter as you can still see plenty of penguins without going into the reserve. We didn't stay too long as we were stopping off on our way from Cape Town to Hermanus but it is well worth a visit if you are travelling that way. The coastal road between is also well worth a mention for it's views.

What a lovely beech, but walk to the end where the penguins are not around as they are cute, but very smelly. Lovely sand and kept clean.

If you want to see penquins without the crowds, go to Betty's Bay. There are more penquins here than Boulder Beach in Simonstown. The drive from Gordon's Bay to Betty's Bay is also beautiful. Definitely worthwhile the trip.

Definitely worth a visit to this long stretch of beautiful white sand with dunes in the process of rehabilitation.

Parking is a bit of a problem in high season but generally this is a great beach to swim, fish, kite surf or just sunbathe.

Found a gem of a place in Bettysbay. Saw penguins up close and had a delicious seafood pasta at a lovely homely setting restaurant. Was worth the trip. Awesome trip with my grand kids.
