A must stop in the Cape. Lots of stores and they are reasonable priced because of the USA/ Rand exchange- there are tons of restaurants and rides as well.

The upscale tourist epicenter of Cape Town (contrasting to the party-centre down on Long Street), this lovely complex of waterfront shops, eateries, and public squares built along the wharf is a great place for a wander, particularly in the evenings, when everything is lit up like the rapture. Many of the town's best restaurants are located here.

In some ways it's just a glorified shopping center, but it is a darn fine glorified shopping center. There are some excellent retail shops in the mall, the aquarium is one of the best, there's awesome restaurants and cocktail lounges, and the place has a fun vibe with the various acrobats and Ladysmith Black Mambazo-like singers scattered throughout the area. There are a couple of fantastic shops that sell some absolutely amazing African treasures that are fun to look at even if you couldn't even dream of affording them.

It includes a few useful sites (the ferry to Robben Island is one) but it's mostly a typical shopping mall located on the waterfront. Sort of an amplified San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf.

Lots of fun with hip vibe even out of season. Diverse range of restaurants and shops, excellent wine store and some boutiques in the mall. Pretty much the heart of cape town for most tourists.Recommended for:Trendsters

The Victoria and Albert Waterfront is where most of Cape Town's shopping action seems to be. There are plenty of restaurants and lots to see. Check out the giant man made out of Coca-Cola crates.

The V&A Waterfront is a good place to visit to get something to eat and drink in Cape Town. It has a massive range of cafes and restaurants along with its massive shopping mall. There is also a craft market and places to go and get a boat tour. It is also the place from which trips to Robben Island depart. There are also a couple of cinemas and much more besides. It is a little expensive in places, but a nice safe place to hang about if you're a nervous traveller.

Everything in Cape Town was beautiful, and the V&A Waterfront is no exception. The downside is that it is oftentimes overrun with tourists, which is a bit annoying to say the least (even though I was one). The shoes here are pricier, so I wouldn't recommend getting any souvenirs here.
