Stony Point Eco Centre opened at Stony Point in Betty’s Bay!

South Africa's Minister of Tourism, Derek Hanekom, has officially launched the brandnew Stony Point Eco Centre at Stony Point in Betty’s Bay. The new facility, which includes a visitor information centre, a tearoom and a heritage site of whaling history, is an initiative solely owned by the members of the Mooiuitsig community. The Stony Point Eco Centre is poised to attract more domestic and international visitors.

Stony Point is one of only three mainland-based colonies of African penguins in Africa. It has become an important breeding site for the threatened species. Penguins can be seen daily; the best viewing is in early morning and early evening between the months of April and June.
