A day trip to Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve should include a stopover at the penguin colony on Boulders Beach at Simon's Town. The beach is sandy and covered with large boulders and is accessible via a boardwalk.
I visited Boulders Beach in January, and the penguins were mostly on their nests. We saw a few young who still had their down feathers, and others who were molting. It was fun to watch the cute little animals waddle across the beach or gracefully swim.
