Boulder’s Beach is a popular tourist attraction in the greater Cape Town area. At Cape Town International Airport, a small section of the airport has been decorated to resemble Boulder’s Beach, giant (fake) boulders and all! I enjoy walking past this decorated area every time I travel to the airport. Of course, even better is visiting Boulder’s Beach for real. For example, see some pictures from my visits¬†here and here. I hope that the airport decoration¬†inspires some tourists to go and visit Boulder’s Beach during their visits to beautiful Cape Town.
