  • Always a good place to shop. Parking not easily available . Wonderful restaurants most with a view of the Waterfront activities.  more »
  • The Waterfront is a pole of attraction of cape town: all the best in cape town is there. Only one must be careful, because at first glance the Waterfront can be very touristy, with trinkets shops and fast food restaurants everywhere. It is necessary to pay attention though: the largest Waterfront gems are hidden. Places like the handicraft market Watershed and gastronomic food market point of the Waterfront are not to be missed, but not too apparent. If you search well, will find amazing things
