Victoria and Alfred Waterfront

The V&A Waterfront, named after Victoria and Alfred, is a favourite among tourists and locals alike making it the most visited tourist attraction in the country. There is almost everything on offer in the Waterfront. Accommodation, an excellent shopping centre, numerous restaurants, coffee shops, wine shops, bars, take away outlets and movie theatres are all there to be enjoyed.

Of special interest in the Waterfront are the Red Shed bazaar, the Two Oceans Aquarium, the Clock Tower, the street performers and the live music. There are many other activities that can be booked from the Waterfront such as helicopter rides over the Cape peninsula, scuba diving, boat tours of Cape Town and trips to Robben Island, home of the previously emprisoned great Nelson Mandela, depart from the V&A.

The entire Waterfront is also dotted with stalls selling curios and souvenirs. The Waterfront is characterised by the historic harbour where boats and ships continuously arrive and depart with Table Mountain as a backdrop. Some of the most impressive hotels in Cape Town are here. The area is also prime real estate with residents in the apartments and penthouses surrounding the various wharfs.

There are plenty of parking facilities, both paid and free, and there is also a metered taxi rank for those averse to trailing in the minibus taxis.
