Stony Point Nature Reserve is home to one of the largest successful breeding colonies of the African penguin in the world.

In Betty’s Bay – on the Clarence Drive Route – only 30 minutes from Gordon’s Bay you will find the penguins in Stoney Point Nature Reserve.

Most tourist know Boulders Beach in Simons Town and that is why Stoney Point in Betty’s Bay is a much more natural setting to let the Penguins watch you. You might spot Dassies and Turtle’s as well. Don’t spread the word, this is a hidden gem!
