This tiny ferry port once had a huge population of penguins—locals would complain about the birds burrowing in their gardens and you'd often see them around town after dark—but sadly, the colony's numbers have decreased in recent years due to an increased number of seals (and domestic cats and dogs) who prey on the flightless birds. You can still see some on nocturnal tours, but other reasons to visit Penneshaw include a gorgeous shoreline, views of spectacularly blue water, and rolling green hills.
