For shopping, dining and round the clock entertainment the V&A Waterfront is a hotspot for tourists and locals alike. Still in essence a working harbour, the Waterfront is an example of creative architecture and restoration and has become South Africa's most visited tourist attraction. Offering over 250 shops from designer boutiques to craft stalls, restaurants, bars, cinemas, music and live entertainment the Waterfront has something on offer for everyone, including plenty of fun activities for children. Children will love the Two Oceans Aquarium and the Telkom Exploratorium. The SA Maritime Museum has interactive displays, the history of local shipwrecks and more and the new Nelson Mandela Gateway in the Clock Tower precinct exhibits historical and educational material relating to Robben Island. Enjoy a drink at one of the many waterside pubs and restaurants, shop till you drop, or relax and enjoy the variety of live entertainment that is always on offer. There are also a range of harbour and sundowner cruises that depart from the Waterfront daily.
