Your Holiday In The V&A Waterfront

The V&A Waterfront has been developed into an upmarket harbour city area where visitors can stay and play with the magical Atlantic Ocean in front of them and the majestic presence of Table Mountain in the background. It caters to everyone with plenty of children's activities, accessibility for prams and wheelchairs, shopping, restaurants and pubs, and informative attractions such as cruises to the historic Robben Island.

Self-catering apartments
Immerse yourself in the beauty of Cape Town while relishing the comfort of luxury self-catering holiday apartments in the V&A Waterfront.

Self-catering villas

Things to do in the V&A Waterfront
Shopping

You never need to leave your world in one for shopping. The V&A Waterfront offers access to 4 000 retailers ranging from clothes and shoes, toys, jewellery, arts and crafts, flea market wares, electronics, and even fine wine, beer, and food – literally anything you can think of buying is available in abundance – right here.

Two Oceans Aquarium

Visit one of Cape Town's top tourist attractions to see 3 000 living sea animals, including sharks, fish, turtles, and penguins in a spectacular underwater nature reserve. Make sure you time it right to watch the fish and penguins being fed. Book your tickets here

Waterfront Amphitheatre
The Waterfront Amphitheatre enjoys a central position surrounded by shops, restaurants, and pubs. This is an ideal spot to sit back, relax and take in the wonderful lively, and buzzing atmosphere and catch one of the many bands, storytelling, or dance shows performed live. A big screen provides a great view from wherever you are and there is even a kiddies playground alongside the Amphitheatre.
Cape Wheel

The Cape Wheel at the V&A Waterfront offers a spectacular 360-degree panoramic view of Cape Town including Table Mountain, Robben Island, the Cape Town city skyline, Paarl Mountains, and the Cape Town Stadium. With 30 fully enclosed, air-conditioned cabins, the Cape Wheel takes passengers 40 metres above the ground in safety and comfort on a 12 – 15 minute, four-revolution ride. The Cape Wheel also offers two wheelchair-friendly and accessible cabins.

Open-Top Bus Tours

If you are ready to leave your world in one at the V&A Waterfront for a morning or afternoon to experience what the rest of Cape Town has to offer, hitch a ride on an open-top bus just outside the Two Oceans Aquarium and "Hop on, Hop off" to see all the sights. Book your tickets here

Visit Robben Island

Take a ferry from the harbour to visit Robben Island, South Africa's unique symbol of the triumph of the human spirit over adversity, suffering, and injustice with its rich 500-year-old multi-layered history. Once on the island, you board a bus with a tour guide to explain the intricacies of prison life and you get to see Nelson Mandela's prison cell in what promises to be a life-changing experience.

Take A Sunset Cruise

With long lingering sunsets, Cape Town has a reputation as one of the best locations to see the sun setting from the sea. Take your pick from a number of yachts, speedboats, and catamarans that offer sunset cruises to remember.


V&A Waterfront weather

In this world in one, the weather doesn't really matter because you will never have a moment when you wonder what to do next. However, long hot Summer days are best spent with a cool drink at one of the many pubs and restaurants, some even offer beach sand and pools where you can cool off. Get cozy during Cape Town Winters by taking part in the bountiful indoor activities offered in and around the V&A Waterfront.
