Lovely place to walk around to eat drink and take in the spectacular architecture. A boat / Canal trip was worth it too.

I have visited the V&A Waterfront, for the first time at 34, while living in Cape Town all my life. This place is amazing! The harbor is huge and very atmospheric, and the shops are close by, and the smell of the ocean is amazing too. If you ever just want to relax and unwind without paying a cent, come to this place. It's huge and very nice to be there. Just remember your hat and sunblock. Enjoy.
Very nice tourist attraction with a lot to offer from Africa craft to helicopter rides (About R2000 per person) to an aquarium. Security is visible and there are a lot of eateries. Nice close up view of the yachts and do also offer fun trips on a variety of boats for about R200 per person. Visit the big wheel for a stunning view. Plenty of secure metered parking. I highly recommend to schedule a full day visit to the V&A Waterfront to see and enjoy everything.
