The Victoria and ALFRED waterfront in Cape Town, South Africa has seen virtually every tourist who sets foot in Cape Town. It is a hub of dining and shopping venues on the waterfront of the most beautiful city in the world. A fabulous view of Table Mountain can be had on the boat over to Robben Island which leaves from the area. The Cape Grace Hotel is located right there but for a more boutique choice try the Cape Heritage Hotel. And don't miss - seriously don't miss- the Savoy Cabbage Restaurant. Two incredible dinners there in the month we were in South Africa. We also had a wonderful meal at Caveau adjacent to the hotel.
Beautiful view of the Ferris wheel at the V & A Waterfront from the Dock House Hotel. The hotel is a boutique hotel with less than ten rooms, each unique and lush. Across the street from the waterfront, the hotel is in the perfect location.
On returning from a very eye-opening trip to Robben Island, I decided to stop at one of the nearby restaurants for a quick drink before heading back to the apartment.
The sunsets are amazing anywhere in Cape Town, but the V & A Waterfront is such a great place to experience this daily occurrence because you have a good variety of restaurants and drinking spots to choose from, should you decide to continue into the night. And if you need to do a spot of shopping, you can do that too from one of the many stores inside the adjacent mall.
