Day at leisure - Exploring the Cape Town Waterfront. So much to do and see!
The V&A Waterfront is South Africa’s most visited destination, attracting millions of visitors every year – and for good reason. Whether you're looking to go shopping, dine at top restaurants, party at local nightspots, visit tourist attractions and museums or investigate the city’s historic harbor, you'll find it all here. (Construction for this harbor began as early as 1860, when Prince Alfred tipped the first stones for the breakwater, hence the attraction’s name: V&A after Queen Victoria of England and her youngest son Alfred.)
If you're interested in visiting Robben Island, you'll find the Nelson Mandela Gateway at the Waterfront.
