The V&A (Victoria & Alfred) Waterfront is located at the foot of Table Mountain and within a working harbour. It is named after Prince Alfred, the second son of Queen Victoria who began constructing the harbor in 1860. The first basin was named after himself and the second after his mother.
The Waterfront is a vibrant place. There are many options for indoor shopping, entertainment and has more than 80 restaurants to choose from. The V&A Waterfront is also where you board the ferry at the Nelson Mandela Gateway to go explore Robben Island.

The V&A Waterfront is said to be South Africa’s most-visited destination and has the highest rate of foreign tourists of any attraction in the country. Also along the Waterfront are the Two Oceans Aquarium and Chavonnes Battery museum.
