The location doesn’t get any better than this. This lodge is right by Boulders Beach which is famously known for being home to a large colony of African penguins, estimated to be as many as 3000!

Boulders Beach Lodge offers an indoor fireplace, a media room, a heated plunge pool, an outside braai, and even an outside shower for sandy feet after a walk down the beach. The property consists of a hotel and a standalone 10-sleeper villa.

Penguins walk on the premises almost every day, resulting in some Christmas card-worthy snapshots.

But don’t take my word for it.
