V & Waterfront is situated between Robben Island and Table Mountain in the heart of Cape Town's working harbour; the V &A Waterfront has become South Africa's most visited destination. Set against a backdrop of magnificent sea and mountain views, exciting shopping and entertainment venues are intermingled with imaginative office locations, world-class hotels and luxury apartments in the residential marina.Set amidst a maritime backdrop of modern ships and turn of the century sailing vessels, the V&A Waterfront provides a harmonious setting for an afternoon drink or meal, a shopping spree or a pleasant stroll along the pier.Shops are open until 9pm, 7 days a week. There are over 240 specialty stores, 11 cinemas and a variety of restaurants and cafés. Many of the restaurants and cafés border the marina offering delightful meals at the harbour's edge. Several restaurants have both indoor and outdoor seating, which makes for a pleasant atmosphere in which to enjoy Cape Town's summer sunsets and winter evenings. The most remarkable and unique aspect of the V&A Waterfront is that it remains a real working harbour with a rich cultural heritage dating back hundreds of years.
