It is easy to see why the V&A Waterfront has become one of South Africa's most popular attractions. Apart from being beautifully situated on the ocean facing Table Bay, it offers great scenic views of Table Mountain, the city of Cape Town and the vast Atlantic Ocean.
It is a vibrant shopping and entertainment hub with a range of restaurants, cafés, bars and bistros, cinema complexes as well as speciality stores, boutiques and craft markets. Named after Prince Albert and his mother Queen Victoria, the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront is a favourite with locals as well as domestic and international visitors.
Another big attraction is the fact that V&A Waterfront is still a working harbour and watching boats coming in to dock is a big draw card. From fishing boats to tourist charters and luxury sailboats can be observed surrounding by seals frolicking in the water among seagulls.

Luxury holiday rentals
Perhaps one of the biggest advantages of booking an upmarket holiday rental in the V&A Waterfront is the convenience. Being able to walk to the heart of the Waterfront means stress-free access to the many leisure and adventure activities.
Boat charters on the ocean, sunset cruises and trips to Robben Island are easily booked and you need not wait in lines or make advance bookings. There is something for children of all ages at the Waterfront too – from movies to games and a large play area for smaller children.
Another great aspect of booking one of these stylish establishments is the fact that it comes with many complimentary services – like a concierge and cleaning service, meaning you don’t have to clean up, tiring yourself out on your vacation tidying up after the children!
The residential areas also have swimming pools, fitness clubs and relaxation areas.
V&A Waterfront in Cape Town
There is so much to do and see at the Waterfront itself and visitors to the city may want to start right here before venturing out into the rest of this scenic city. Did you know that the Waterfront can trace its history right back to the first settlers in the Cape in 1652?
Further construction of the harbour – today part of the V&A Waterfront - took place in the 19th century and many heritage buildings in the Waterfront were built then as well.
For instance, the beautiful Clock Tower with its red-and-white façade draws the eye. This Victorian Gothic-style structure was part of the Port Captain’s Office and dates back to 1882. It was painted red back then too and the building has been maintained carefully to keep it historically intact.
