A great selection of shops and restaurants as well as being the setting off point for Robben Island. Undergoing expansion/renovation at the moment so lots of building works which ar rather noisy.

A beautiful vibrant place to experience. There are multiple stores to visit. There are multiple activities to do while you are here as well such as going on a cruise tour and experiencing fine dining or perhaps watching a concert, sounds surreal right? Except it's not. There are so many gasp worthy moments that leave you astonished at this establishment. You are certified to leave extremely exhausted here man, walking around alone is a journey, this place is humongous. Overall, i enjoyed exploring this trendy place. It was worth the hype. Cape Town has a special place in my heart.
Still one of the coolest places in Cape Town. The views, the vibe and even the shopping is amazing. There is something for everyone and you can be a tourist without feeling like one. Even though there are lots of restaurants, I would argue that on average you can probably eat better elsewhere in town, but then you don’t have the views…..guess you can’t have everything in life.
