    Victoria Wharf Mall

    0.15 mi from Robben Island
    13 reviews

    Your basic high end mall. Why come to South Africa to go mall shopping? There are a few craft centers and food emporiums in the vicinity that are worth visiting. Also, the departure point for the ferry to Robben Island is close to the Victoria Wharf Mall.

    Tacky, expensive and self-conscious. Very little to recommend it. Try the red and blue barns instead.

    Nobel Square

    Yes, it's four statues, but it's a part of the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront and if nothing else it's a good meeting point. But wait, did you know that South Africa is the home to 10 Nobel Laureates? Yup! So, go there and pay your tributes to guys like Nelson Mandela who made this country you are visiting a country ...

    Cape Town's tourism hub has everything you would expect: tours, restaurants, and lots of shopping. It's a good introduction to the city, but you'll quickly be ready to move on.

    City Sightseeing Tour

    0.36 mi from Robben Island
    8 reviews

    A nice way to get around, and up to Table Mountain. However some of the stops barely seem worth it. Guides are variable, the second guide we had was amazing with fantastic historical and botanical knowledge however the first bus guide or driver (unsure which) tried to rip us off by not giving us the correct tickets.

    The stadium is visible from most of the city. I don't know what the interior is like but the exterior certainly catches the eye.

    Fantastic views over Cape Town. The lift rotates on the way up and down, so enables you to see everything. You can also trek up and down.

    Table Mountain Cableway

    1.34 mi from Robben Island
    39 reviews

    The cable car rotates while climbing so everyone has a chance to get a 360 degree view. I think it makes sense to take the cable car to the top and then spend the time and energy exploring the top rather than hiking to the top and then being too tired (at least for some of us) to explore the ...

    Couldn't help but feel as if I was in Santa Monica but with 100s of thousands of fewer people. As soon I start looking at the price of real estate, I know it's a gem.
