Cape Town’s official harbour might have relocated, but the V&A Waterfront remains a popular boat mooring, a place to shop to your heart’s content and dine on cuisine from around the world afterward
It may be right beside Cape Town’s busy city centre, but life’s pace slows down upon arriving at the V&A Waterfront. Boats hang silently in the water and different rides go out throughout the day – some with onboard bars, some on a pirate boat and some to watch the sunset at sea.
Beyond the water, there’s a collection of outdoor shops and restaurants with a local marimba band, jazz band or a cappella group performing casually on the corners. The restaurants lining the water sell everything from fresh seafood and sushi to burgers and pizza.
