Victoria & Alfred Waterfront

March 12, 2020

Situated on the foreshore of Cape Town, just a short walk from the CBD, the Victoria & Alfred (V&A) Waterfront, or just the Waterfront as it known to locals, is so much more than a shopping centre, and has become a tourist destination in its own right.  In addition to shopping and hospitality, amongst other activities, there is boat cruises, helicopter trips, gyms, pirate ships, cave golf, a big wheel, museums, an aquarium and the largest modern art museum in Africa - the Zeitz MOCAA.  Still a working harbour, the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront extends over a large area making it perfect for an afternoon of serendipitous wandering and browsing both inside the centre and outside through it is many annexes and attractions. Shopping wise it caters for most budgets, with over 450 outlets from the local finds like Master Wires-and Beadcraft’s African Curios and Imani Jewel’s African gemstones in the Watershed Design Shed to the high end super luxury offerings situated in the exclusive ‘Platinum Mile’ shopping area of the centre.  It has a staggering 80 restaurants and cafes.  From coffee shops to cocktails at sunsets to fine-dining experiences, the V&A has hospitality covered and then some. With an array of attractions for kids, by day it is the perfect place to bring the family for a safe and fun day out. After dark the Waterfront comes alive with a different kind of buzz with its multiple bars and venues offering live music and entertainment till late in the evening.  27 21 408 7600
