Visit Cape Town's Victoria and Alfred Waterfront
No vacation to Cape Town is complete without a visit to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront as this is Africa's most popular tourist destination, welcoming millions of people annually. We believe the Waterfront area is one of the best locations to base yourself in for your trip to Cape Town. It is centrally located, has a number of fun and interesting amenities close at hand, and has a staggering array of hotels to choose from. It may not be quaint and private, but it is convenient and tourist friendly.
There is plenty to do in the V&A Waterfront. It has an outstanding array of restaurants, up-market shops, craft markets, outdoor theatres and movies. The fascinating underwater world of the Two Oceans Aquarium is sure to delight children, with plenty of sharks, tuna, turtles, penguins and 300 species of colourful creatures to attract their attention. Trips to Robben Island depart from here, or you can take a sailboat to the beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay. During the day an assortment of exciting helicopter flips are on offer, which provide a bird's eye view over this scenic city. It is not uncommon to see fishing boats come in with their daily catch or seals frolic in the harbour.

Choosing to stay in the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront offers great ease and close proximity to many attractions, including the City Centre, and less than 10 minutes by taxi to the vibrant Atlantic Seaboard.
