The V&A Waterfront, located in Cape Town, South Africa, is a bustling waterfront on the Atlantic Ocean towards the end of the city. It is still a working waterfront, meaning that ships are still coming in and out of the waterfront and workers still work day and night on repainting and rebuilding ships. 

Beyond it being a working waterfront, it is also home to some of the most exquisite cuisine and shopping experience. The waterfront is host to many restaurants, both chain and craft, as well as hundreds of stores, including MRP and Cotton On. If you're looking for a good deal on shopping, head to MRP. In American dollars, my total for flip flops alone came to around fifty cents. There are also smaller shops that host crafty items. 

V&A Waterfront is also home to the gateway towards Robben Island. A post is soon to come later with photos. 

If you ever visit the Waterfront, be sure to check out these places:

  • Market on the Wharf: Home to local and unique foods
  • MRP: High end fashion for an insanely low price. 
  • Mugg and Bean: Incredible coffee for a low price. They offer a bottomless cup for something like $2. It's so cheap that I didn't even convert it. 
  • Any restaurant in the Waterfront is worth going to. All of them have their own types of cuisines that have some of the freshest food on the planet.
