  • Beautiful colony, but great to see nonetheless. We had some fishermen come really close to them and then almost chased the penguins away, but seems like the penguins are almost used to it.  more »

  • 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.
