Robben Island viewing Point, South Africa
Robben Island is more than a home for penguins. It is also regarded as a hotspot for seabird biodiversity, and is a base for African black oystercatchers, sacred ibis, cattel egrets, little egrets and bank cormorants.
Apart from the mainland colonies at Boulders and Stony Point, Robben Island is considered to offer a very accessible place for those wanting to see the penguins.
The colony of penguins at Robben Island is also the best of the three to give an impression of seeing penguins in their natural breeding environment
